July 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Black swans are rare and unpredictable events that create a huge impact on the ways we live and work. During the Covid-19 pandemic, individuals and companies have to adapt to a new normal for daily life. Which industries are thriving and which are struggling in the new normal? What will the consequences be for how we work in the future? How can companies adapt their innovation practices to thrive in the current climate?
In a conversation moderated by SCET Co-Founder and current Executive Vice Chairman at Ygrene Energy Fund, Stacey Lawson, SCET Faculty Director & Chief Scientist, Ikhlaq Sidhu, and SCET Managing Director, Ken Singer, will discuss the temporary and long lasting changes that are occurring right now due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They will talk about concrete ways organizations can improve their innovation practices in the changing environment and how to find opportunity during crisis.
Topics of discussion will include technology strategy, adapting policies, short and long-term scenario planning, re-allocation of financial resources, and adopting the proper mindsets for adaptation.
