Helene Auramo from Zipipop discussed how the social media makes leaders, not just organizations transparent. Antti Koskelin, the CIO of Konecranes, pointed out how the [your favourite letter here] generation spoiled by Google and friends will just not accept the unusable enterprise software and ICT policies (could not agree more!). Minna Elomaa gave a nice presentation about the change management she successfully did at Tapiola Group: repeat, repeat, repeat, that is!
The highlight was absolutely the yearly strategy award. The winner Kimmo Suominen sees strategy as a narration that is consumed!
In my presentation I tried to open up the hopefully successful Futurice strategy and leadership principles. The slides are in Finnish, so here comes a short English summary:
Nassim Nicholas Taleb taught how the world becomes more non-gaussian. The black swans rule. How does it change your business? Most (all?) of the established organizations are poor in utilizing these opportunities. Do you leave it for start-ups only?
I also wanted to point out that single case examples like this are not very reliable source of information. Maybe we just have been lucky!
