The Anticipatory Prosthodontist: A Proven Model to Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results
Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation. With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. 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. Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disrupter instead of being the disrupted — thus creating competitive advantage and reducing risk.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Identify the hard trends that will happen to accurately anticipate disruptions before they disrupt, turning disruption into a choice and an opportunity to accelerate growth.
- Describe the soft trends based on assumptions that might happen and the related opportunities to influence them to your advantage.
- Apply the hard trends methodology to accelerate both Everyday Innovation and Exponential Innovation.
