Moonshot Innovation in the age of AI


What is “Moonshot Innovation”? Why is it relevant for organizations these days? How can we make the most of it in the age of artificial intelligence?

After the huge success of our last event "Are you ready for 2030?", we are ready to take the 2018-19 academic year by storm starting with the following session.

ESADE Executive Education and the ESADE Alumni Zurich Chapter are pleased to invite you to a session by Ivan Bofarull on 27th September. Ivan is the director of Global Insights & New Strategic Initiatives at ESADE, and the academic director of "The Journey to Business Transformation", an executive programme delivered in Silicon Valley in partnership with Singularity University.

Ivan Bofarull will take us on a journey to unlearn previous assumptions about businesses and organisations, by unlocking the possibilities of moonshot thinking, and offering a structured pathway for moonshot innovation, or what he regards as "the new laws of innovation", which might have an impact on each manager’s job in forthcoming years.
