What Daniel Burrus Talks About:
The Anticipatory Organization: A Proven Model to Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results
Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation.
With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted – thus creating competitive advantage, and reducing risk.
This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency – anticipation – and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organization’s growth and their personal success.
Accelerating Growth: Leading with Strategic Foresight & Certainty
Accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles and acting on new opportunities. All too often, change comes from the outside in, forcing us to react by slipping into a crisis management mode, and putting out fires. This presentation is about opportunity management, identifying the driving forces of predictable change, driving growth strategies from the inside out, and taking control of our future.
Business Process Transformation: The Big Ideas that are Changing Everything
Daniel Burrus takes the concept of looking into the future – and transforms it into a new paradigm for running an Anticipatory Organization using the new tools of innovation for driving business process transformation. The Cloud, Virtualization, Mobility, and Machine-to-Machine Communications (M2M) – are the great enablers allowing organizations to transform every business process in ways that were impossible just a few years ago – to dramatically reduce costs and drive new revenue streams.
Leading with Strategic Foresight and Certainty
Agility and adaptability are no longer enough! Accurately anticipating customers changing needs and technological change, provides the biggest advantage. In times of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need to ask ourselves what are we certain about? Strategies based on uncertainty equal high levels of risk. Strategies based on certainty dramatically reduce risk and produce superior results.
Strategic foresight is based on the new Science of Certainty that will take your vision to a new actionable level – by identifying the events that will happen in the future. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted.
Accelerating Innovation: Using Hard Trends and Exponential Technology
Technology is continually changing the rules of competition, rendering many traditional business strategies and processes obsolete. Emerging technologies provide opportunities for creating new, high margin products and services – as well as enable companies to gain new levels of speed, agility and cost savings. In addition, they allow us to de-commoditize current products and services.
Identifying and understanding the challenges and opportunities that new technologies create has become a key business imperative, however, this can prove a daunting task in the modern marketplace.
Transforming Healthcare with Technology-Enabled Innovation
We are standing at the base of a mountain of technology-driven change within the sphere of Healthcare. Wireless telemedicine, point-of-care transactions, e-enabled disease management, home diagnostics, the virtual hospital, e-enabled customer choice, e-enabled assisted living, e-communities of practice, just-in-time training, and procurement service providers are just a few of the many areas that can be used to accelerate a positive transformation in healthcare.
Understanding the new opportunities that will result is essential in determining a clear course of action. Technology will never replace doctors and nurses, but it will provide them with more data-driven insights and actions. A combination of data and technology will enable doctors to achieve their desired results faster – and empower patients with the knowledge of their own bodily state. Navigating these Hard Trends will lead you to the future of modern healthcare in a digital age.
By applying Daniel Burrus’ principles to our business, in less than a year we have been able to double revenues and increase the value of our company by a factor of four - and we feel the biggest impact is yet to come.
