On this CEO Exclusive we talk about strategy and emerging ideas in thought leadership on how to build a great strategy for your company with Kaihan Krippendorff, CEO of Outthinker.
Outthinker is a growth strategy consulting firm that collaborates with businesses to step out into the future to execute with clarity today. We believe the future belongs to those organizations bold enough to embrace – and shape – what comes next. We believe that the organizations that will thrive in the future will embrace solving problems that matter to the world as the best path to profit (they will be purpose-driven); see strategy as a vibrant, ongoing, company-wide conversation rather than a quarterly report; see employees as a critical source of advantage rather than a cost; embrace open, networked structures instead of top-down hierarchy; embrace the transformative power of digital technology; and adopt more agile approaches.
Dr. Kaihan Krippendorff is the founder of growth-strategy firm, Outthinker. He is an internationally recognized thought leader, battle-tested consultant, and sought-after keynote speaker on the topics of business strategy, growth, transformation, and innovation.
