Using Technology To Go Beyond The Competition
When a new technology satisfies a major social need, a revolution is created. Technology is continually changing the rules of competition, rendering many traditional business strategies and processes obsolete. Identifying and understanding the challenges and opportunities that new technologies create has become a key business imperative.
In this eye-opening presentation, Daniel Burrus identifies specific technologies that will directly impact you and your industry. He will demonstrate how they can be used to generate strategic value by transforming products, services, and markets, as well as your customers. You will learn how to anticipate the future of technological change and turn a rapidly changing business environment into a competitive advantage.
Creating And Sustaining Competitive Advantage
Changing times means changing strategies. Business technologies are transforming every relationship that matters to your organization, helping you build an enterprise of unprecedented agility and responsiveness. But just as technology is undergoing a revolution, the rules that govern those who use it in their business are also being redefined.
As we create organizations that can respond rapidly to change, we tend to react to change rather than anticipate it. In this empowering presentation, Daniel Burrus will share powerful strategies for creatively applying technology to drive growth as you develop new products, services and customer experiences that will propel you far ahead of the competition - and help you to stay there!
Unlocking Technology's Promise
Technology has the power to alter reality. An overwhelming majority of hardware and software manufacturers agree that, in general, their customers are dramatically under-utilizing the tools they already own. Is it any wonder that many are beginning to question whether technology will ever live up to their expectations. As we strive to maintain a competitive edge, it's important to understand that technology is only one component of the equation for success.
In this powerful presentation, Daniel Burrus will share valuable strategies for integrating strategy, technology and people to maximize your technology investment. Creatively applying new tools, as well as the tools you already have in place, can unlock opportunities and provide new competitive advantage.
