The Anticipatory OrganizationTM The Missing Competency
If you want to jump ahead of the competition—at low risk to your organization—forget agility. Forget crisis management. The main skill you need to thrive in a business environment marked by hyperchange and uncertainty is the ability to accurately anticipate the future.

This may seem impossible. It’s not!

Daniel Burrus is one of the world’s leading technology forecasters and innovation experts. He is globally recognized for his exceptional 30+ year record of accurately predicting how technological, social, and business forces converge to create untapped opportunities. Based on decades of research and experience applying his hard trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, he has identified the missing competency: anticipation. With the Anticipatory Organization model, Burrus enables business leaders to identify the Hard Trends that will happen, predict disruptions before they disrupt, and capitalize on emerging opportunities.

Daniel Burrus uses illustrative examples to teach attendees how to separate HARD TRENDS—trends that will happen—from SOFT TRENDS—trends that might happen. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls EVERYDAY INNOVATION, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.

This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, which will accelerate both their organizations’ growth and their personal success.

Accelerating Growth
Accelerating growth requires a new way of thinking about overcoming obstacles and acting on new opportunities. All too often, change comes from the outside in, forcing us to react by slipping into a crisis management mode, and putting out fires. This presentation is about opportunity management, identifying the driving forces of predictable change, driving growth strategies from the inside out, and taking control of our future.

Daniel Burrus is a highly successful entrepreneur who has founded and managed six businesses, three of which were national leaders in the first year. For over 30 years, he has established a worldwide reputation for his exceptional record of accurately predicting how technological, social, and business forces are converging to create enormous, untapped opportunities. In this eye-opening and motivating presentation, the author of six books, including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best selling book Flash Foresight: How to See the Invisible and Do the Impossible and the international best seller Technotrends, takes you to the next level by sharing valuable insights into the opportunities yet to come, preparing you to capitalize on the next wave of technological change.

Leading With Strategic Foresight and Certainty
Agility and adaptability are no longer enough! Accurately anticipating customers changing needs, as well as technological changes, provides the biggest advantage. In times of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need to ask ourselves what are we certain about? Strategies based on uncertainty equal high levels of risk. Strategies based on certainty dramatically reduce risk and produce superior results. Strategic foresight is based on the new science of certainty that will take your vision to a new actionable level by identifying the events that will happen in the future. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted.

Business Process Transformation: The Big Ideas That are Changing Everything
Based on his current New York Times & Wall Street Journal best selling book Flash Foresight: How to See the Invisible and Do the Impossible, Daniel Burrus takes the concept of looking into the future and transforms it into a new paradigm for running an Anticipatory OrganizationTM using the new tools of innovation to drive business process transformation. The cloud, virtualization, mobility, and machine-to-machine communications (M2M) are the great enablers allowing organizations to transform every business process in ways that were impossible just a few years ago to dramatically reduce costs and drive new revenue streams. All clouds are not created equal, and v-enabling the enterprise is much more than implementing virtual desktops, servers, networking, storage, and security.

    "Dan did a great job and was very well received... Often with a keynote you get the usual speech, but Dan did some homework and while I’m sure most of what he said was his normal, the fact that he included our industry in his talk not only drove the point home but made the audience feel like he understood them and wanted to see them and their industry succeed."
