Forward Summit 2023 FAQ

In today’s dynamic business world, organizations face unprecedented challenges, requiring distributed structures and shared leadership responsibilities. As we embrace digital and agile transformations, understanding the complexity of people’s behavior and needs becomes critical, as they are the key to success. That’s where Management 3.0 steps in – a powerful mindset empowering modern management and leadership.

Join us for an immersive summit where we delve into the practical applications of Management 3.0. Our best facilitators and consultants will showcase real-world transformations and demonstrate how Management 3.0 can synergize with systemic and agile frameworks. Gain hands-on tools and services for your daily leadership practice and navigate the dynamic landscape with confidence.

What is this conference about?

At the heart of Management 3.0 lies a profound understanding: the foundation of any successful organization lies in its people. To drive effective transformations, individuals need to change their mindset, behavior, and, ultimately, the organizational culture. This involves a fundamental shift in how we lead organizations, manage systems, collaborate across silos, take ownership, communicate with each other, and serve customers. The transformation for future-fit organizations requires realigning expectations, processes, and culture.

According to McKinsey, 70% of transformations fail due to a lack of engagement within the organization and inadequate investment in building human capabilities to sustain the change. To achieve true transformation, leaders must address how people think and act in their day-to-day work.*

Years of research also confirm that investing in our employees is not only altruistic but seriously good for business. Research conducted by the University of Oxford and Harvard in partnership with the jobs site Indeed provides compelling evidence. They analyzed data from over 1,600 US-listed companies, with employees anonymously reporting on measures such as job satisfaction, purpose, happiness, and stress. Their findings showed that higher levels of employee well-being were associated with increased firm value, higher return on assets, and greater profits. In fact, the top 100 firms ranked by employee well-being scores outperformed the main US stock indices with a return of over 30% since January 1, 2021.**

So what are you waiting for? Join us on an inspiring journey into the world of Management 3.0 and Agile Leadership. Explore the transformative power of this mindset, learn from real-world experiences from our facilitators, and equip yourself with the tools to lead your organization toward lasting success. Embrace the future of management and thrive in the ever-evolving business landscape.
