8:30 Registration for a 9.00 start. Finish by 17.00


The Great Room, 
The RSA (Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce)
8 John Adam Street


Strategic Management Forum

“Leaders are increasingly challenged by wicked problems. Business and society pay a heavy price for any mistakes. And many ‘predictable surprises’ could and should be prevented. These are governance and management issues directors and executives need to address as a matter of urgency. They are responsible for ensuring value is created and protected”

Leaders are increasingly concerned with what are variously called "messes", "Black Swan" events, and Wicked Problems because the environment in which businesses and organisations operate is said to be VUCA - Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. These external factors are analysed using the PESTLE mnemonic for Political, Economic, Social, Technology, Legal and Environmental factors. They are usually analysed as a way to identify and manage risks. But are they the real cause of corporate crises? No!...

This one-day conference with an international line-up of 11 speakers are experts in critical systems thinking, complexity, risk management, change management, project management, investment, decision making, organisational design, leadership, organisational culture, governance, diplomacy, reputation management, stakeholder relations and executive education.

The speakers also have experiences in a wide range of economic sectors and industries including finance, health, digital technologies and telecoms, the military, government, the public sector and the European operations of one of the world’s largest conglomerates.
