Impulse Sessions - How to Navigate Disruption

How to navigate disruption in manufacturing to drive innovation and opportunities for growth

Disruption in the manufacturing industry comes in many forms and many leaders are experiencing pressure on performance, but the big question is how do you anticipate change, act early and navigate the disruptive challenges to turn threats into opportunities?

From digitalisation to sustainability, new business models to low cost entrants and commoditisation, this strategic workshop addresses the impact and consequences of disruption in its many forms and explores the key focus areas and tactics for tackling  the important challenges that organisations need to face to succeed in a disruptive world.

In partnership with the University of Cambridge and Institute for Manufacturing, we are holding a Strategic Workshop on "How to navigate disruption to drive innovation and opportunities for growth" specifically tailored for senior leaders in the manufacturing industry.

During a full day - interactive session with like minded peers and experts, we will help you to recognise the changing dynamics in your industry and step out of ‘business as usual’ to address 3 critical success factors in navigating disruption in your business:

  1. Understanding what disruption is and where to expect it.

  2. How to explore the changing relationships in your industry and exploit them to identify and select the most viable innovations.

  3. How to increase momentum for rapid and fluid change and continuous execution in your business

With expert support from moreMomentum and IfM, we will explore forces within your organisation that drive trends, threats and opportunities, identify potential solutions and business models, develop techniques to drive engagement from key stakeholders and accelerate implementation of change strategies.

If you are a senior leader in the manufacturing sector experiencing pressure on growth, revenue and margins, with disruption from trends including new business models, digital transformation and commoditisation, then you should attend this workshop to identify and select innovations to drive growth and future success in your business.

Format of the meeting
We will have a highly interactive workshop with like-minded peers, in which we will have a few deep-dives into challenging topics.

We will deliver a few short presentations, sharing our experience from working with manufacturers and from our ongoing research.
A few of your peers will share their thinking and experiences and pose a "dilemma", which will trigger our discussion rounds during the day. Before the meeting we will coordinate to ensure we have topics and challenges on the table which are relevant to all of you.
A couple of days or weeks after the meeting, we will conduct 90-minute strategy session with each of you separately.
During this session we will further discuss your aspirations and objectives, the obstacles which are holding your business back and the key-points to overcome these obstacles. We will conclude with a short term action plan to identify areas for disruption and how to capitalise upon them to drive growth and momentum for your business.

What you will get

  • An enhanced understanding of disruption, best practices and pitfalls to avoid.
  • Actionable insights on how to execute a disruptive strategy, with guidance on how to overcome likely hurdles and dilemmas.
  • A short term action plan to increase impact in your organisation.
  • An opportunity to build your network of like-minded peers for ongoing support and ideas exchange.

Who should attend
