Answer Questions

In this hands-on and practical session, Alex Osterwalder and Tendayi Viki show how they coach business leaders to make decisions in a world of uncertainty. They outline how managing an existing business and inventing or exploring new ones are fundamentally different. In an uncertain world, leaders need to design the conditions for the best ideas and projects to emerge. Alex and Tendayi introduce a series of fundamental underlying conditions leaders need to put in place and explain a variety of tools and processes to manage in a context of uncertainty.

  1. Learn the fundamental difference between managing a business, re-inventing a business, and exploring new ideas.
  2. Help leaders establish an execution and exploration culture.
  3. Tools, processes, and practices to manage uncertainty (and innovation).
