These dilemmas of leadership can be formidable stumbling blocks for incumbents. At Innosight’s ninth annual set of CEO Summits, a select group of senior executives came together to tackle these and other central challenges. Over the course of one-day events in Boston and London, they discussed the theory and practice of transformation by sharing their setbacks and breakthroughs.
“The new game begins before the old one ends,” said Harvard Business School Professor and Innosight cofounder Clay Christensen, one of the summit leaders. “The new game begins even before you can tell anything is wrong in the old one.”
