In today's business environment, constant change is a challenge that has to be dealt with head on - from turbulent markets and more discerning customers to severe financial constraints. Many technology organizations have been required to make difficult decisions and initiate new business strategies to meet such challenges. Effective leadership in the face of change can make a huge difference in achieving a positive result.
Join us for a discussion of how the ability of a company's leaders to influence the actions of others works to effect needed change in an organization. Seasoned industry panelists will encourage you to reconsider how you think about change and to recognize successful frameworks for approaching different types of changes. Topics for discussion will include:
- How senior executive teams successfully deal with contradictory agendas, such as the tensions of managing short-term goals (existing products) and long-term goals (innovation) at the same time
- How to reposition your company into a different vertical market
- How to fund and run your company when VC investments are not available
