Tomorrow's organisation faces a major challenge. Technology and social developments accelerate the changes that are taking place. In the past we could take a wait-and-see approach, but in this current climate, organisations and even entire industries are quickly obsolete.

This keynote lecture takes you on an inspiring journey and explains how to prepare an organisation for a future of exponential change. Which skills do you need? How do you develop an ecosystem? What does inspiring leadership look like? How can you use the ‘new world’ to navigate your organisation to the next phase? How do you build the organisation of the future? This keynote lecture offers insights, case studies, many examples and a clear step-by-step plan.

Below you will find an overview of the topics within this keynote lecture.

Topics

A new mindset, a new culture
Change is not about technology. It’s about the right mindset required for change, such as saying goodbye to old habits and being open to new ideas. It’s about embracing uncertainty as a source of innovation. We need a culture that exudes willingness to change and employees who are committed to realising this change. This requires freedom, independence and servant management.
Future scenarios
The world changes at a speed we’ve never experienced before. Changing our strategy will therefore have to keep pace with the speed of changes in the market. Furthermore, we need to prepare for an ‘imperfect’ future and develop a strategy that helps us adequately manage uncertainty – by using future scenarios. But how do we do this the right way?
Ecosystem
We are faced with major uncertainties and there are many challenges ahead for the organisation of the future. It’s important for organisations to be ‘hyper-connected’ to the new world. We need to teach employees how to collaborate with external specialists, startups, scientists and educational institutions. The quality of the ecosystem determines whether your organisation will succeed or fail.
Experimentation
In a rapidly changing world, experimentation is a prerequisite for continuity. Organisations that are constantly discovering are well equipped to adapt to the future. The organisation needs to be encouraged to experiment and make mistakes as part of the learning process. We can also call in ‘special forces’ to rapidly develop new products and services that complement existing business models.
New Skills
AI has found a growing number of applications in construction over the years. Besides autonomous machinery, it’s also used for planning and surveying, in safety and maintenance, and in the monitoring and analysing of structures. AI enables fully connected construction sites, where sensor-generated big data ensures increasing levels of efficiency and safety, and enables prediction and prevention of injuries.
Future leadership
Tomorrow's organisation needs to change faster than ever and needs a unique architecture of people, organisation, and culture. We need leaders who inspire and facilitate, who lead by listening, asking questions, and being vulnerable. Change is not only about strategy, but also about psychology. How do you motivate your employees to lead the organisation to the next phase?
Ethics
In many ways, people are no longer separate from technology. It is, therefore, important to keep an eye on the moral side of technological developments, consider the implications for the world of tomorrow, and ensure we take important ethical considerations into account. We need to determine our boundaries and voice our opinions about how people and machines should work together.

All the topics mentioned can be presented in a comprehensive, compact way or, if required, omitted. Topics from other lectures or your own suggestions can also be added. We will gladly discuss this with you.

"You can’t really talk about the future without also being part of it”, says Richard van Hooijdonk. So he put his money where his mouth is. To date, he’s had several RFID chips injected into his body that perform various tasks for him. Van Hooijdonk is planning to have a number of additional chips implanted in 2020 and 2021.
