Transforming Teams to meet complex challenges in the highly disruptive, digital, VUCA-driven World.

 

 

OVERVIEW

Photo PWI Keynote 3“Today’s highly disruptive, digital and VUCA-driven era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (also known as Industry 4.0) not only provides a challenging environment for leaders to operate but would need to depend on their teams, which are critically important to getting work done. Yet, not all teams are created equal. Some fail to perform, or they perform below expectations. High-performing teams require a complementary set of characteristics known collectively as “SCORE™”—cohesive strategy, clear roles and responsibilities, trust-based open communication, rapid response in decision making, and effective and exemplary team leadership”

Today’s highly disruptive and digital-driven era of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” (also known as Industry 4.0) demands that individuals and organizations perform at higher levels and with greater speed than at any time in the past. Organizational leaders and team members alike must place a new emphasis on learning and the harnessing of individual and collective creativity.

Teams have become a principal building block of the strategy of successful organizations[1]. With teams at the core of corporate strategy, your success as an organization can often depend on how well you lead and motivate your team members to collaborate together.  How are your problem-solving skills?  Is the team enthusiastic and motivated to do its best?  Do you work well together and resolve conflicts?

A high-performing team demonstrates a high level of synergism – the simultaneous actions of separate entities that together have a greater effect than the sum of their individual efforts.  It is possible, for example, for a team’s efforts to exemplify an equation such as 2 + 2 = 5! High-performing teams require a complementary set of characteristics known collectively asSCORE – cohesive strategy, clear roles and responsibilities, open communication, rapid response, and effective leadership which will be explored in-depth during the workshop

Organization and leadership transformation is expected to continue in the near future in view of the insurmountable challenges posed by a highly disruptive, digital and VUCA-driven Industry 4.0.

The presentation will include the latest findings of the research and best practices published in the book “Transforming NextGen Leaders: Meeting the Leadership Challenges in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)” which focuses on the managing the organizational and leadership challenges in leading  and engaging the team during the digital transformation journey. This new normal has ushered in a different business environment which is fast, open and responsive impacting every aspect of the business operations.

This session aims to provide the participants with the following:

  • Leaving the session with a renewed sense of energy as time out from the day-to-day gives them space and freedom to think and self-reflect as a team leader in today’s highly disruptive, digital and VUCA-driven era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution
  • Gain a clear understanding of how a group becomes a unified, high-performing team and learn the best practices on how to create and lead a high performing team
  • Learn how enhancement in team building and management can be reached through better communications and cooperations
