Yvette Montero Salvatico

Principal & Managing Director at Kedge; Founding Instructor at The Futures School

 Yvette Montero Salvatico Biography

Yvette Montero Salvatico is a Principal and the Managing Director at Kedge - a global strategic design, foresight, creativity and innovation consultancy. She is also a founding instructor at The Futures School, a three-day immersive, project-based foresight program. Holding a bachelor’s degree in Finance and an MBA from the University of Florida, Yvette has over 15 years of corporate experience with large, multi-national firms such as Kimberly-Clark and The Walt Disney Company.

Before joining Kedge in early 2012, she led the effort to establish the Future Workforce Insights division at the Walt Disney Company, identifying future workforce trends and leveraging foresight models and techniques to assess potential threats and impacts, emerging ideas, and exciting opportunities for the organization.

Yvette holds membership in organizations such as Society For Human Resource Management (SHRM), Association for Talent Development (ATD), Association for Professional Futurists (APF), and World Futures Society (WFS). She is an experienced and polished speaker addressing large audiences and organizations on topics such as business policy, talent, work, diversity, career management, strategy, innovation, foresight and futures thinking.

Topics
  • Innovation

    Wicked Opportunity Offerings We live in an age where accelerating complexity and exponential change is the norm – an unpredictable world that requires a completely different approach to business, economics, technology, and social development. Instead of operating from fear and risk, we must reframe Wicked Problems as “Wicked Opportunities™” in order to create transformational strategies and solutions. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to leverage the landscape of complexity and make sense out of isolated trends and data, developing the skill of pattern recognition for aspirational ideas and unseen opportunities. Participants will be assigned to small groups for the entire session. They will work together to create real-world innovations (products, processes or services) using established Strategic Foresight tools and methods. To launch their innovation efforts, attendees will be given trend cards summarizing current issues in society, technology, the environment, economics, and politics. Length: 90-120 min

  • Strategic Foresight/Futures Thinking

    The Natural Foresight Model As more and more companies begin to recognize the importance of foresight and futures thinking in their increasingly complex organizations, there has been a strong call for tools and methods that can seamlessly integrate into their current processes and corporate cultures. Too often, companies have found it difficult to implement strategic foresight because of a lack of practical applicability and an overly academic approach. To overcome this implementation hurdle, Kedge has created a four-step process (Explore, Discover, Map, and Create) that mimics natural growth curves. By presenting the critical skill set of futuring through more organic approaches that echo those found in product development and business planning, foresight can be more readily adopted. Corporate foresight practitioners will be exposed to a straightforward, action-based approach to building a foresight competency in their organization. The Kedge Natural Foresight Method includes foresight tools like environmental scanning, assumption/bias modeling, and scenario development, organized in a straightforward, adaptable approach that has been successfully implemented in large, multinational firms. Length: 60-90 min

  • Workforce

    The Future Connects Us: The Secret to Bridging Cultures There is a stark difference between being an “international” company and a global one. In the past it was sufficient for organizations to manage offshore units from the comfort of their U.S. headquarters, sending out an occasional expat for a short-term assignment and allowing local offices almost complete autonomy. This hands-off leadership approach was largely a response to the overwhelming complexity of building a worldwide organization; however, the inability to understand and overcome cultural differences has also prevented most multi-nationals from fully capitalizing on the untapped value of the global economy. As world markets shift to the East and the complexity of managing a global workforce further intensifies, only those companies that are able to unite their geographically dispersed teams under a common vision will survive. What is the secret to achieving this synergy? Mapping the Future. By collaborating to develop a long-range aspirational narrative, an organization can uncover cultural biases, regional perspectives, and diverse points of view, ultimately leading to improved innovation and stronger business results. Creating the opportunity for dialogue about the future connects people at a foundational level, serving as a powerful accelerant to bridge cultures in the quest for the global organization of the 21st Century. Length: 60-90 min

  • Professional and Personal Development

    Three Ways the Future Belongs to Women The session explores three ways women can leverage the emerging landscape to create their aspiring futures: 1. Shake up silos to surface sweet spots 2. Make sense, not spreadsheets 3. Annihilate iteration, demand disruption Yvette shares how trends in society, technology, economics and politics are all pointing to a new age where traditionally female characteristics like collaboration, qualitative analysis and futures thinking will be the key to personal and professional success. Length: 60 min

  • The Future of...

    2025: Future of the Consumer Managing retail in the 21st century requires new approaches and mindsets. The growing fluidity of the global economy, the dramatic disruptions of the digital revolution, and the radical empowerment of individuals through mobile computing and micro-manufacturing have combined to create a challenging future landscape for retail management and strategies. Are you ready for the new landscape of the 21st century? Yvette will share insights from her tenure leading the Future Insights effort at the Walt Disney Company where her team identified future trends in order to assess potential threats and impacts, emerging ideas, and more importantly opportunities for the organization. Learn more about the major trends and shifts that will influence consumer behavior in 2025 and how to make well-informed strategic decisions, today. Length: 60-90 min
