08:30 – Opening

08:39 – Prime minister Erna Solberg

08:40 – Future of mobility
The world of mobility is a typical industry that is undergoing full disruption. And just like any industry that is faced with digitization, the changes are too fast for many traditional players to adapt in time. Yet, with all the unpredictability that is inherent in these disruptions, there are a number of fixed rules that can be used to prepare optimally.
Carlo van de Weijer speaks from his long experience in the high-tech and automotive industry about the changing world of transport and logistics, but with clear links to other industries.
 – Carlo van de Weijer, Singularity University

09:00 – Bold ambitions to breakthrough value
Continuous disruption in the marketplace is changing the way organisations do business, thus organisations are being driven to undertake BIGGER, Bolder and more Sophisticated transformations than ever before. Business Transformation is achieving breakthrough value by making and aligning fundamental changes to a company’s business model. Business transformations often fail or do not deliver expected value, hence there are important lessons to be learned.
  – Anne Cathrin Haueng, Director, Deloitte

09:09 – Disrupt the dinosaurs – How to save or kill a large enterprise
There are millions of hypersmart and superfast entrepreneurs trying to disrupt the business models of almost every major enterprise in the world. The last 3 years I met hundreds myself and it made me leave my top executive position. They made me totally reevaluate my view on the future competitive landscape. The ones who succeed seem to have a few things in common. The way they create insights, the way they eliminate assumptions, the way they plan and the way they perform their daily work. Most of them have a common vision. They want to disrupt the dinosaurs.

09:33 – The Future of Executive Decision Making.
Jorn Lyseggen describes the valuable and underutilized insights that can be found in the information that companies and people leave behind on the internet – so-called online breadcrumbs. He shows that these can be used to track Porter’s 5 forces and create powerful intelligence that greatly benefits decision makers in marketing, product development, executives, board members, and investors.
– Jørn Lyseggen, Founder & CEO, Meltwater

09:48 – Innovation myth busters
Aker BioMarine started as a wild idea 12 years ago. We believed we could have success where others have failed, we believed we could build knowledge in areas where competence didn’t exist, and we believed we could build a business where a market wasn’t developed. Today Aker BioMarine is a successful Norwegian biotech company with 350 employees and more than a billion in sales globally.
– Matts Johansen, CEO, Aker BioMarine

09:55 – 10:15 BREAK

10:17 – Future Leadership –where are we heading?
We speak so easily these days of systems — systems thinking, change, connectivity, networks. In my experience we don’t yet know how to act or think about this new interconnected world of systems which are predicted to „hit“ us even harder with the fourth industrial revolution. Yet we have learned to think and manage a world of separations and clear boundaries: boxes described jobs, lines charted relationships and accountabilities. Conscious leadership is a future that works for all by putting people first, empowering them and constantly reminding ourselves that all of these new technologies are first and foremost tools made by people for people.
– Alfred Tolle, Founder, Wisdom together

10:32 – Trust is a must
In this presentation, Tom Georg will talk about trust and employee-centric leadership philosophies like servant leadership and trust-based leadership.

10:32 – Future Insight – Future Learning: How digital media are reshaping education and work life
The panel debate led by Oddgeir Tveiten and June Breivik, will focus on current trends and perspectives on how technology now enforce a new era for life-long learning. Companies, organizations in the public sector, policymakers and institutions of education are challenged to revisit old models simply because artificial intelligence, big data, and decentralizing knowledge networks create new means and opportunities. These are contemporary discussions internationally and we want to focus on how such trends now pose challenges in Norway and future learning here.
