What Jack Shaw Talks About:

Transformational Leadership – Leading Your Organization through Transformational Change
Motivating people and achieving established goals are worthwhile. But these are management, not leadership. A transformational leader must drive radically innovative changes in their organization’s mindset, processes – and business model. And they must actively participate in the leadership of equally transformative changes in the business and social ecosystems of which their organization is a part.

To do so they must clearly visualize their transformational outcomes,  gain the commitment of their team – and lead the drive to achieve their objectives. In this presentation, Jack Shaw outlines the five characteristics of transformational leaders and lays out the key steps managers and executives must take to become one.

Jack will customize this program for specific industry verticals or business functions on request. Examples include:

  • Transformational Leadership in Manufacturing
  • Transformational Leadership in Accounting and Auditing

Managing Change in Disruptive Times
There’s an old military aphorism, “The first casualty of war is the plan.” By definition, living in disruptive times seems to defy an organization’s ability to manage change.

Emerging technologies like AI and Blockchain can quickly redefine long-established industries. A few tweets from powerful politicians can stand markets and supply chains on their heads in a matter of days. What else is there to do but wait – and react as well as possible? Quite a bit it turns out!

In this presentation, Jack Shaw lays out a proven methodology for managing change in disruptive times. One that allows current operations to continue smoothly, lets organizations respond to short-term disruptions – and keeps the long-term strategic objectives on track. Join Jack and learn how to effectively manage change in your organization – despite the disruptions!

Customized program examples include:

  • Managing Disruptive Change in Logistics and Supply Chain Management
  • Managing Disruptive Change in Manufacturing and Distribution
  • Managing Disruptive Change in Accounting and Auditing

3D Printing – Creative Disruptive Change and Enabling Spectacular Innovation Across Business, Industry, and Society
As the newest, most powerful manufacturing technique, 3D printing is driving the next industrial revolution. It’s creating disruptive change – but it’s also enabling remarkable innovations.

And, when integrated with other emerging technologies, it makes a huge economic impact – and not just on manufacturers. Explore its role in the digital economy and where it is headed across society as a whole in the next decade of digital transformation.

In this program, Jack describes not only what 3D Printing is and how it’s being used, he shows how your organization can implement a strategy – to take advantage of how 3D Printing will affect your Industry.

Customized program examples include:

  • 3D Printing’s Impact on Manufacturing and Distribution
  • 3D Printing’s Impact on Healthcare
  • 3D Printing’s Impact on Logistics and Supply Chain Management

5G & IoT: The New Internet of Everything – How High Speed Wireless Communications Linking the Physical World will Drive Disruptive Change and Spark Innovation across Businesses, Industries, and Society
5G. The Internet of Things. Everyone’s heard of them – but what makes them different from what we already have? Sure, it would be nice to download videos faster, but do my forks and spoons need to talk to each other? What can these new technologies really do for my business?

Turns out, quite a bit! Imagine smart energy applications that can cut power instantly on detection of a local disruption – virtually eliminating blackouts. What about robotic surgery? Not from the next room over, but from the other side of the globe – by the world’s best. Or autonomous vehicles that don’t merely navigate on their own, but continuously communicate with other vehicles – and even the roadway infrastructure itself to minimize travel times and increase safety.

And, combining 5G & IoT with other emerging technologies such as AI and blockchain leads to even more astounding capabilities. For example, picture a manufacturing plant that reroutes material flows on the factory floor and reprograms production machines in real time in response to changes in demand for various products at retail – several tiers down the supply chain!

5G and IoT will deeply disrupt your business and your industry. But it will also enable powerful innovation. Jack shows you how to design your 5G/IoT strategy for a sustainable competitive advantage.

Customized program examples include:

  • 5G & IoT: The New Internet of Logistics and Supply Chain Management
  • 5G & IoT: The New Internet of Manufacturing and Distribution

Innovation, Technology, and the Future
Major, game-changing technologies used to come along about once a decade, and one at a time. Now they come every year or two, and they come in bunches! Currently, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, 5G Wireless, Internet of Things (IoT), Augmented/Virtual Reality, and 3D Printing – are each driving accelerated rates of changes. Combined, their synergies are making change go exponential.

The only way for organizations to survive these exponential changes is through radical innovation – and fortunately, the same technologies that are driving these changes are enabling innovation.

In this presentation, Jack Shaw will describe how organizations can most effectively visualize, plan and execute on the radical innovations needed to change from responding to change to initiating it – and turn a future of threats into a future of opportunities!

Customized program examples include:

  • Innovation, Technology, and the Future of Healthcare
  • Innovation, Technology, and the Future of Accounting and Auditing
  • Innovation, Technology, and the Future of Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Creating Your Digital Transformation Strategy
Many executives think Digital Transformation means using digital technologies to reduce time, errors, and costs in their business processes. And these are certainly worthwhile objectives – but they are not Digital Transformation.

It means rethinking your business model – and then redesigning your business processes using leading edge digital technologies as needed now and in the future.
