In today’s increasingly complex society, more and more organizations are engaging in alliances, partnerships, joint ventures and other forms of active collaboration. We are being pushed to consider the strategic direction of our organizations in the context of larger business and community ecosystems that include everything from big corporations, startups, customers, and competitors, to universities, government agencies and non-profit entities. Multi-stakeholder innovations are needed to create healthy platforms for future growth. Further, millennials in the workforce are asking how their organizations are contributing to solving global and local problems.
The conference will address the unique challenges inherent in leading, defining, and implementing strategy as part of a larger ecosystem. The integration of ASP’s “Lead, Think, Plan, and Act” framework is the organizing mechanism for the conference. We will embrace diverse perspectives in the development of program content.
