Strategic Realignment to Overcome Disruption and Improve Business Performance

Presented by: Professor Jonathan Trevor, Oxford Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, and Founder and Managing Director of The Praxis Network

Guest Panelists: Sally Schopmeyer, Scott Salmirs and Guy Mingo

Wednesday, January 24 | 9:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Why do some companies thrive while many others struggle? In our new age of disruption, a key reason is the failure of many leaders to realign the moving parts of their enterprise to reflect the new realities of their changing business environment. From their business strategies to how they are organized to support their enduring purpose, thousands of enterprises worldwide are operating below their potential simply because they’re poorly aligned or have failed to realign. This thought-provoking session is about strategic alignment and realignment, a practical leadership blueprint to overcome disruption and secure high performance sustainably. Once mastered, strategic realignment is an effective way of turning adversity into an advantage, regardless of sector.

Directly following this session, we will hear from BSC peers on their thoughts, alignments and realignments they've been making to ensure their business succeds into the future.

Presented by: Alan Beaulieu, President and Principal, ITR

Thursday, January 25 | 10:45 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Conflicting trends characterized much of 2023. Some leading indicators were rising; others remained in decline. Interest rates remained perilously high, and people tended to make a certain assumption: “If nothing bad has happened by now…” Join us as we look at the trends for 2024, including a weakening economy, lower inflation, and a shift in consumer spending. We will also take a look at key domestic and global markets. With this presentation, you will have the time to develop tactics and strategies to beat the cycle and prepare for the inevitable business cycle rise ahead. Knowing what to watch for and the probable timing of the reversal to rise will give you confidence as you lay out your plans.
