Campaign Test

The world is changing rapidly and in different ways. The future is becoming less predictable. Looking at the many game-changing technological innovations and the evermore increasing speed of doing business, it is easy to see that organizations need to come up with suitable answers about how they want to run their business – Leading change with disruptive thinking?

It’s time to be aware of our external and internal conditions, to reconsider whether our habits and mindsets that have made us successful in the past still relevant. Whether traditional habits and mindsets could fit in the context of disruptive thinking? How essential role of leadership is effectively exercised in processes of innovation and disruptive change?

"Disruptive Thinking"


  • Why Disruptive thinking in unpredictable business environment?
