EXCELLING IN A DIGITAL, AGILE, PURPOSE-DRIVEN FUTURE

As a successful entrepreneur, author, consultant and CEO, Kaihan Krippendorff has worked with and studied thousands of companies and the different approaches they take to drive growth, foster innovation, and set themselves apart from the competition.

How is it that some companies are able to continually pivot their strategy, transform, and pursue new growth ideas?

The answer is they have a repeatable process and common language that can be learned and taught. Based on his most recent book, Outthink the Competition, Kaihan Krippendorff delivers a systematic process and set of proven business strategy tools he has used with more than 300 clients in almost every industry to create innovative strategies and growth ideas that have generated more than $2.5B in revenue.

Blending together first-hand stories of inspiring business and social innovators, from Elon Musk to Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus.

Kaihan Krippendorff presentation teaches the audience a tested method for developing actionable growth ideas that unlock growth, increase competitiveness of their business and arm them with the tools needed to excel in today’s digital, agile, and purpose-driven world.

In this inspiring keynote you will learn:

  • How to use The Outthinker Process® to generate powerful ideas that can drive bottom-line results across all levels of the business
  • How to find a “Fourth Option”: the option beyond the obvious choices, the option others will not see or respond to
  • The Outthinker playbook: five strategic narratives you want to master now
  • A simple approach to avoid killing off “crazy” ideas and instead turn them into winning moves
  • How to extract value of internal ideas to drive organic growth
  • How to build a culture of Outthinking that celebrates fresh strategic and innovative ideas and thinking
  • How to empower and inspire your employees so that they are ready to take action to develop, test and scale innovative growth ideas

DRIVING INNOVATION FROM WITHIN

“Innovation” brings to our mind the maverick entrepreneur who quits their job, at unimaginable odds, to build a business on their own. But this entrepreneurial story is a myth.

As a successful entrepreneur, author, consultant and CEO, Kaihan Krippendorff argues that intrapreneurs – employees who incubate new businesses within corporations – have had a far greater impact on the world.

Nearly all of the most transformative innovations over the past three decades, from e-mail and the Internet to DNA sequencing and MRI scans, were introduced by employees who did not quit their jobs but instead took the challenge of innovating from within.

REALIZING TRAPPED VALUE ACROSS THE EIGHT DIMENSIONS OF INNOVATION

When we say “innovation” we almost always mean “product innovation.” We talk about research & development and possible new solutions to meet unmet needs.

This is a one-dimensional and incomplete approach to innovation. Dissect the most innovative companies of the last decade and you will see that great innovators disrupt their markets by reaching beyond the product.

Oftentimes their success rests on choices that have little to do with new products.

ACTIVATE THE POWER OF AN ENTREPRENEURIAL MINDSET TO DRIVE GROWTH

In a world marked by accelerated change and innovation, mental agility has proven to be a critical driver of success in sports, warfare, business, career, and life. Yet few agree on what exactly “mental agility” is or know how to develop it.

Companies that fail to move on quickly enough from their linear organization will not succeed. In this

We are experiencing a historic acceleration in the pace of change in our world. Artificial intelligence, digitization, robotics, 3D printing, social shifts, and the rise of purpose-driven enterprises are reconfiguring how every conceivable industry operates.

These changes divide us into two camps: the “Disruptors” and the “Disrupted”.

BUILDING A MISSION-ORIENTED ORGANIZATION THAT HARNESSES THE POWER OF CSR AND A DO-GOOD STRATEGY

Historically, we were taught corporations existed for one purpose: to maximize shareholder value.

But companies are waking up to the realization that such a focus destroys shareholder value over the long term because it creates resistance to your growth. 

The financial services industry – from banking to payments to insurance – is undergoing a rapid and historic transformation.

The shifting regulatory landscape, changing consumer/investor behavior, an endless stream of agile newcomers armed with disruptive fintech tools, and platforms powered by Blockchain and AI are mounting an attack on incumbent institutions and business models.
