The 11th Global Peter Drucker Forum

The Power of Ecosystems: Managing in a networked world

Ecosystems are everywhere, not confined to natural environments.

The 11th Drucker Forum will enlighten and equip leaders across economic sectors facing the growing opportunities and challenges of business ecosystems. Discussions will address key questions such as;

  • What does it mean to be an effective leader in a business ecosystem?
  • What new competencies are required in these more ambiguous and richly connected environments?
  • And as advanced digital technologies such as AI, machine learning, and the internet of things spread, how will business ecosystems evolve?

Hult Ashridge expert faculty Megan Reitz, Johan Roos and Sharon Olivier have been invited to take part in this years 11th Global Drucker Forum and Pre-conference event. Register for your conference pass today and download the full program using the link below.
