The Big Pivot: Innovation and Value Creation in an Unpredictable, Expensive, and Digital World

Based on his award-winning new book, The Big Pivot, Andrew Winston, a globally recognized speaker and business strategy expert, lays out a new vision for business in fundamentally changed world. A few critical mega-trends are changing “business as usual” and how companies are valued by employees, customers, and the markets: deep demographic shifts, resource constraints (that creates enormous volatility in input prices), climate change and extreme weather, and radical transparency driven by big data and new digital technologies that connect us all. But these challenges also offer unprecedented opportunities: multi-trillion-dollar markets are in play and the winners of this new game will profit mightily. In a unique and entertaining way, Winston’s talk… • Demonstrates how investors are rethinking the value of many sectors – from energy, utilities, and infrastructure to retail and consumer products – in the face of deep change; • Dives into the highly contentious “stranded assets” theory that could quickly wipe out half of the value of oil, gas, and fossil fuel companies; • Explores how a simple, but profound shift – the Big Pivot – creates both direct and intangible value in companies, improving profitability and resilience, while greatly reducing risk to the enterprise; • Offers many “a-ha” and “wow” moments backed by surprising data about the world around us. With concrete advice and tactics, and stories from companies like Barclays, Bank of England, PNC Bank, as well as global brands like Apple, Ford, Nike, Unilever, and Walmart, The Big Pivot provides a blueprint for creating more resilient, flexible, profitable, and value businesses.
