VENUE: Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), Sandton, Johannesburg
Professor Julian Birkinshaw, Deputy Dean of the London Business School and author of the best seller Fast/Forward – Make your company fit for the future will present a half day seminar on what is required for leaders and organisations to function optimally today and in the future.Fast/Forward is a contrarian new approach that challenges the traditional “rules” of business success. Professor Birkinshaw argues that the strategies that worked in the past could now position your organisation for failure. In short, we operate in a world where “best practices” no longer apply. And the only rule of success is this: The rate of change within an organisation must equal the rate of change externally
In uncertain rapidly changing times, Fast/Forward organisations are scanning the horizon for winning opportunities. Instead of questing after more analysis, they are now responding with agility by making smart intuitive decisions.At this half-day seminar, Julian Birkinshaw, will show general management and executives across all disciplines how to implement the new rules in their organisations and empower their teams to become more agile in the new world of business.
Professor Birkinshaw will paint the big picture of a new approach to strategy and provide concrete business insights as well as models and tool kits that you can use to make your company fit for future.

Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
