Transforming Legacy Organisations

Chief Learning & Innovation Officer, and Co-founder

SingularityU Nordic

Larger, established organisations have very complex systems, which challenge their innovation powers. Therefore, they need to transform their status quo cultures into cultures full of innovators. CIOs must lead the way to identify the individual, organisational and societal patterns that create barriers towards innovation and conduct optimising, augmenting and mutating innovation simultaneously to become the innovation champions of the future.

Open the day with a thought-provoking keynote from the Co-founder of SingularityU Nordic on how to:

  • Identify barriers of innovation
  • Create the correct culture for your organisation to succeed in the future
  • Pinpoint key metrics to measure success

The vast majority of organisations are not compliant with current Internet standards, government requirements and recommendations, and GDPR. Does that include your organisation too? The interesting paradox is that fixing this is so cheap, that nobody wants to do it.

In this presentation Per Thorsheim, CSO at Nordic Choice Hotels, will discuss how best to ensure compliance.

•Understand the importance of a culture of inclusion across the Infosec function
