The Robust Enterprise

Building resilience, embracing innovation, and realising strategic opportunities

Fast-paced economic, political, regulatory, social, ecological and demographic developments are creating a plethora of threats which require new levels of robustness to prevent disruptive threats. This will include the emergence of entire new sub-management disciplines such as innovation management or trust management. This research theme focuses on large incumbents, seeking to develop approaches to revenue resilience, trust management methodologies, strategic envisioning for technology opportunism and disruption, and also studies intrapreneurial talent acquisition.
