Beyond Digital outlines seven imperatives for leaders to follow as the digital age continues to evolve and Mahadeva Matt Mani joins us to present the book’s key insights.

Mahadeva Matt Mani is an adviser to executives on organization cost and productivity transformation for Strategy and one of the global leaders of PwC's Fit for Growth performance platform.

The Upside of Uncertainty - A Guide to Finding Possibility in the unknown - Nathan Furr 

November 16th - 1PM to 2PM

For most of us, uncertainty causes fear, suspicion, and stress. But without it—change and innovation rarely happen. According to INSEAD professor Nathan Furr, and entrepreneur Susannah Harmon Furr, the only way to get to the possibilities we dream about is to embrace the unknown.

For their new book, The Upside of Uncertainty, Nathan and Susannah drew on hundreds of interviews, as well as pioneering research in psychology, innovation, and behavioral economics, to develop a set of practical tools that will help us all optimise the uncertainty that characterises our lives.

In this webinar Nathan presents the thinking behind their model for “finding possibility in the unknown” and will walk us through some of the practical approaches that have proved most useful in the many innovation workshops and engagements they have led, helping people turn uncertainty into a force for good.

Nathan Furr is a professor of strategy and innovation at INSEAD in Paris and an expert in innovation and technology strategy. He is widely published and works with leading companies including Google, Microsoft, Citi, ING, and Philips.
