Beyond Sustainability

How Digital is Helping Organizations Build Regenerative Business Models

 

So-called sustainability efforts aren't just inadequate, they are impossible. As the world faces constant change, nature provides the template for resilience: regeneration. Regenerative business models wield the power of business and markets in service to people and planet, aligning profit models that give back and contribute value to their ecosystems rather than constantly extracting from it. Emerging technologies play a critical role in accelerating and scaling these models, far beyond "net zero".

Inclusion at Scale

The Untapped Opportunity of Business Ecosystems

Leading digital companies are known for relying on ecosystems to innovate. What these vast ecosystems are less known for is their implications around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Far beyond hiring, this talk shares eye-opening new research from Kaleido Insights on inclusive innovation, leading programs, best practices, and trends. Regardless of industry, attendees are sure to walk away with new thinking and concrete actions to drive inclusion within and beyond the organization.

Brave New Societies

Redefining the Social Contract for the Networked Age

Digital and societal disruptions of the last decade, accentuated by the events of 2020, are forcing organizations to reckon with the fact that normal wasn’t working. The confluence of crises– pandemic, climate, economic, racial, technological, and trust– is forcing organizations to recalibrate their operating models while confronting rising tensions.

Non-Obvious Tech Trends

How they are Reshaping Your Industry & Innovation Strategy

The pace of change driven by technological advancement isn’t just accelerating, it’s widening. As myriad technologies continue transforming modern society, business, and culture, several hidden trends are influencing the future of your customers, organization, and industry.

Jessica Groopman shares findings from her firm’s (Kaleido Insights) original research, surfacing key implications and case studies while offering clear direction on how to apply insights to help organizations.

Digital Transformation

The Quest for Business Vitality in the Era of Constant Change

As businesses grapple with highly dynamic economic, competitive, and health forces in a post-pandemic world, digital transformation has shifted. Based on research of more than 200 organizations, Kaleido Insights has developed a 50-factor model for benchmarking digital transformation over seven core business areas. While companies often see digital transformation as inherently technological, it is more often a human endeavor requiring cultural embrace of change.

The Collision of Biotech & Infotech

Why Your Organization Can’t Afford to Ignore It

Big data, technology, and the natural world are converging. Traditional healthcare, natural and material science, and consumer electronics are colliding, sparking a profound shift in how technology will augment the human body, mind, relationships, and environment.
