Q: Has Apple and Ford lost their edge with the iPADs and cars with steering wheels no longer in demand? Is there an UberX or Airbnb about to hit your industry? What can you do to disrupt your own organisation? How will you select the right bottle of Penfolds if the electricity grid puts your cellar in the dark?
A: Find out at the Harvard Club’s 3rd Business Innovation Series on June 23rd and July 28th at EY’s Head Office in Melbourne.
For many business leaders, disruption is a very frightening concept. The demise of Kodak, Blockbuster, Garmin and other once-thriving companies is clear evidence that disruption can indeed occur across a wide range of industries. But disruption need not be fatal – it can not only be survived,it can be anticipated and managed. Moreover, disruption can become a successful strategy for organisations that understand their core strengths and their industry. This series will draw on the experiences of Australian companies to illustrate effective ways of dealing with disruption.
The Business Innovation Series uses the innovative 'Case Study' method of learning pioneered by Harvard Business School. Harvard case studies on AGL, Ford, Toyota, Penfolds and and Naked Wines will be taught by our faculty, led by former Harvard Business School Professor Michael Vitale.
This is a unique opportunity for Alumni, their colleagues and their clients.
Held in EY’s newly opened Innovation and Design space in the Melbourne CBD, this 2 day program is spread across one day in June and one in July.
Places are strictly limited to 60 attendees.
