Vi startede dagen på skolebænken med en række forelæsninger, seminarer og gruppearbejder med skarpe erhvervsprofiler, professorer og CBS-studerende, som udfordrede deltagerne med viden om fremtidens kompetencer. Om eftermiddagen – efter “det store spisefrikvarter” – tændte fremtrædende talere det lange lys og talte om, hvordan man med fremtidens kompetencer inden for ikke mindst digitalisering og innovation vil kunne komme de globale udfordringer og problemer i møde.

På VL Døgnet 2017 mødtes to generationer: De unge millenials og hermed fremtiden repræsenteret af de studerende, der med nysgerrighed og drive inspirerede VL-gæsterne. Og erfaringen repræsenteret af de etablerede erhvervsledere, som de studerende kan aspirere til og trække på. Her i feltet mellem fortid, nutid og fremtid opstod en ny energi, der ansporede til nytænkning af løsninger på samfundets udfordringer.

Design af ledelse

Design af ledelse” er overskriften på VL-årstemaet. I en tid, hvor forretningsmodellerne udfordres af den nye teknologi, er der behov for at nytænke – eller redesigne – de kendte tilgange til ledelse, innovation og forandring. Det gøres ved brug af Danmarks designeres sans for kvalitet, funktionalitet og bæredygtighed.

Danske topchefer: Vi er fit for fremtiden – vores virksomheder er ikke

Danske virksomheder er ikke gearet til fremtiden. Som organisationer halter de bagefter, når det drejer sig om de afgørende kompetencer, der vurderes vigtige for at opnå succes

Sådan lyder konklusionen i en ny undersøgelse; ”Fit for fremtiden? VL medlemsundersøgelse 2017”, der er foretaget af CBS og Megafon for Dansk Selskab for Virksomhedsledelse i forbindelse med det forestående VL Døgn. Du får dit personlige eksemplar på VLDøgnet af de tre undersøgelser. “VL-Medlemsundersøgelsen” er den første.

Ingen forventer at lederen kommer med alle svarene

En leder har ikke svaret på alting. Det er verden blevet for kompleks til. I fremtiden bliver det endnu mere kompliceret. En enkelt person har ganske enkelt ikke nok viden og kompetencer. Derfor er det nødvendigt at trække på andre. Samtidigt bliver det menneskelige element afgørende i en digital fremtid, hvor (næsten) alt bliver digitaliseret. Også mangfoldighed er noget, vi kommer til at se endnu mere af i fremtiden. Det skal ikke længere være mænd i 50’erne, der tager alle beslutningerne alene.

Rema1000 har succes med “Design af Ledelse”

REMA 1000 er en discountbutikskæde med holdninger. CSR er en integreret del af forretningsmodellen. Men én ting er strategi, noget andet er hverdagspraksis: For hvordan hjælper man kunderne til at vælge sundere og mere bæredygtige fødevarer, når de handler i en discountbutik? “Design af Ledelse” er svaret.

Behold egoet i lommen

“Goddaw do – jeg laver lige en kop te.” Det var de første ord i et telefoninterview med Søren Schrøder fra den amerikanske virksomhed Bunge, som er nummer 214 på Fortunes oversigt over verdens største virksomheder. Den jyske baggrund fornægter sig ikke. Men han er topchef for mere end 35.000 medarbejdere i en global virksomhed og er derfor en af de danskere, der er højest placeret i det internationale erhvervsliv.

Jean-Francois Manzoni, President, IMD

Agility and learning in the C-suite: So necessary, and yet so hard!

IMD’s new President Jean-Francois Manzoni has been directing leadership development programmes for the world’s best companies for over 25 years in over 30 countries. During this session, he will share what his and others’ research tells us about why managers – especially senior managers – find it so hard to develop new behaviours, and what they and their organisations can do to improve their chances of success.

It is increasingly well accepted that the best predictor of executives’ future success is their ability to stay agile and keep learning over time.  As a result, organisations have been investing significant time, money and energy in supporting executives’ lifelong leadership development. The good news is: Leaders are increasingly well informed; they often know what they should be doing. Unfortunately, they typically find it hard to implement this new knowledge and instead keep repeating habitual patterns of behaviour. Adding to the complexity is of course the increased focus on emerging technologies that not only alter business models and value creation, but also the way we work and interact with each other.
