GLOBAL TRANSFORMATIONAL TRENDS AND ISSUES (Part 2)

Plenary

1. How Companies Navigate New Geopolitical and Socio-Economic Realities
*Penny Naas, Vice President and Managing Director for International Public Affairs, UPS (USA)

2. Industries and Companies in Transformation: The European Energy Industry and Sweden's Vattenfall--Key Success Factors

*Martin Reinholdsson, CEO, NorthConnect KS/ASv, Vattenfall (Sweden)

"The energy industry in Europe has gone through an unprecedented change in the last two decades. This includes transformation towards rapid decarbonisation, integration of the power system, a common CO2 market, but also write downs in the order of 100 Bn€ for the conventional asset base such as coal and nuclear. Some of the biggest players have separated the “old” from the “new”. During this process, the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the global financial crisis, as well as other major events have also changed the context and the last years electrification and e-mobility have really taken off. Some of the opportunities were clearly enabled by digitalisation. For a successful company the above has required many different skills and disciplines ranging from understanding and dealing with national and European politics to the introduction of innovative solutions to make small scale solutions efficient on a large scale. Driving change, innovation and fundamental shifts in values and beliefs have put big challenges on management and the leadership. Vattenfall is today a healthy company 110 years of age with a clear fossil free agenda. It is 40% smaller in terms of revenue but probably more resilient to changes and more innovative than ever before."

COMPANY AND ORGANIZATION EXPERIENCES WITH TRANSFORMATION, CHANGE AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT (Part 1)

Plenary

The Myth of Talent Development
*Kenneth Rhee, Professor and Dean, School of Business and Leadership, Nazareth College (USA)
"A main competitive advantage an organization has in the knowledge economy is its human capital.  As artificial intelligence takes over the more mechanistic and routine type of work, that will make knowledge workers even more indispensable. Effective talent development in many organizations will become more critical in the future.  Unfortunately, many common practices in organizations detract from accomplishing exactly what they are hoping for in talent development and employee retention.  The presentation will explore how organizations can avoid falling into such traps."  

Discussants:
*Tanja Levine, VP Ashridge Executive Education and Adjunct Professor, Hult International Business School (U.K. and Switzerland)

*Danica Purg, Dean and President, IEDC-Bled School of Management , and President of CEEMAN, the International Association for Management Development in Dynamic Societies (Slovenia)

*Jakob Hansen, Double You Partners (Denmark)

"How we are trying to enable a dedicated talent development environment throughout the organization based on a concrete programme for high potentials. We are sort of betwixt and between and want to move forward where we want to focus on experience-based talent management. We are trying to make a leap into the future on talent and leadership development, but that is not easy in an engineering company that is a consultancy, and culturally old and conservative."

3. "LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT THAT WORKS"

*Thierry Bonetto, Founder and Senior Advisor, Learning Futures, formerly Director of Learning and Development, Global Head of the Danone Academy (France)

Leadership development that works based on my experience, research and analysis.

*Stefan Bauer, Transformation and Capabilities Leader Germany, Austria, Switzerland (Germany)

"Eli Lilly and Company's "Germany Hub", including Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, has been led through a profound cultural transformation since 2014--from a more traditional, hierarchical organization, to an increasingly new work, agile organization. The vision is to be a most human, sustainable organization, fostering the health of society in these three countries. People are creating self-organized teams, based on their topics of interest--anybody can join voluntarily. Employee engagement is outstanding, also generating very strong business results. And from a sustainability perspective, Lilly will be the first pharma company in Germany, that has a Common Goods balance, scheduled for 2019."

5. UPS

*Paul Nieminen, Senior Director Culture and Change, and member of the Transformation initiative, UPS (USA)

"Transforming Organizational Culture to Support Strategic Transformation: “Culture eats strategy for lunch” is a common management mantra. During times of transformation, organizations espouse the need to develop a supportive organizational culture, however few invest in the comprehensive rigor that results in culture change, often relying on standard and often ineffective change management models. This presentation will describe the effort that one $70B Global organization used towards evolving its 100+ year old culture to support innovation and transformation. The presenter will introduce the applied research methodology, example cultural roadmap, implementation framework, and examples of the custom tools used in this effort. As part of a comprehensive socio-technical systems approach to culture change, Business Driven Action Learning (BDAL) proved to be a significant intervention to identify and change key underlying assumptions in the culture." 

*Daniel Carrera, President, East Europe District, UPS (Czech Republic)
Transformation at UPS: What Does that Means for Business Development?

2. The Critical Need for Inspiring Visions and Visionary Leadership—Visions that fire up people and drive development
*Gunnar Georg, Compassion Consulting, formerly with Ericsson (Sweden)

This session is a sharing of 20 years of experiences on what makes a vision powerful and also on common pitfalls. You are invited to share your experiences and questions."

3. Redefining Leadership: A Discussion of Humanism in Management, and the "Human Performance for Life" Approach
*Rasmus Moeller and *Jakob Hansen, Partners, Double You Partners (Denmark)
"Recent research in the field of human performance claims that managers must take a “human-to-human” perspective and use this leadership style in order to be successful. Yet the most influential paradigm for human performance still seems to be driven, and even deepened, by its integration with advanced technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI). But the executive leadership team is in this way further distanced from the “machine” they operate and the people they lead. But in visualizing and creating a leadership development framework for the future, what must we learn from this paradox in order to be of real service to future leaders? This we would like to explore with you in this session."

4. Lessons Learned and Issues in Designing an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Business and Leadership Program
*Kenneth Rhee, Professor and Dean, School of Business and Leadership, Nazareth College (USA)
"As artificial intelligence gains more traction in many different organizations, higher educational institutions are jumping into the bandwagon by offering programs in artificial intelligence.  Most of these programs are technical programs (coding, machine learning, and algorithms) embroidered with topics on ethics and humanities.  My school is embarking on a program in artificial intelligence that takes a different approach to amalgamate technical AI, business, and leadership.  The tripartite approach will produce a synergistic educational experience for students that will help them to effectively integrate AI with business processes and practice enlightened leadership that will help organizations to optimize human-machine interactions."

“No matter where you look in India you must expect the unexpected. There is always a lesson of some kind if you can scale away the obvious trappings where we from the West tend to get stuck. I would like to speak about Auroville in India where I have gone several times with my family to explore a place where seekers come together to not only physically build a city out of a desert, but also to do it with the vision to develop universal consciousness in a parallel process—to grow together and deepen the understanding of the human condition. Truly action learning.”
