  • Practically Radical: Transforming Your Company and Challenging Yourself

    We are living through the age of disruption. You cant do big things anymore if you are content with doing things a little better than everybody else or a little different from how you did them in the past. In an era of hyper-competition and nonstop reinvention, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special. Originality has become the acid test of strategy. In any field, winning organizations dont just offer competent products and services. They stand for important ideasideas that shape the competitive landscape of their industry and ideas that reshape the sense of whats possible for customers, employees, and investors. Over the past two years, Bill Taylor has had in-depth access to 25 organizations that are masters at making changeorganizations that are unleashing innovations and driving transformations. Using lessons set in a variety of fields (from health care to software, from automobiles to financial services, from hotels to hospitals) Bill shows his audience how to shake up their industry, transform their company and recharge themselves.

  • Tough Problems, New Remedies: A Practically Radical Prescription for Health Care

    Now that health-care reform is the law of the land, leaders in the field will accelerate the transition from debating the merits of legislation to devising the future of their organizationsin an environment reshaped by public policy and private pressures. In this health-care-oriented keynote, Bill Taylor offers an agenda for progress and change drawn from a wide range of health-care innovators as well as innovators from other industries.

  • Business as if People Mattered: A Practically Radical Approach to HR

    The best companies are as rigorous and creative about hiring enthusiastic staff members as they are about every other element of their business. If you believe that companies compete on the power of their ideas, then you must also believe that they compete on the quality and passion of their people. Bill Taylors presentation brings a hard edge to a notoriously soft topic.

  • From Selling Value to Sharing Values: A Practically Radical Agenda for Marketing

    There is a paradox at the heart of the relationship between companies and customers. Products get cheaper and better, yet customers get less satisfied. Thats because when almost everything gets cheaper every year, offering customers a good deal wont win them over or keep them happy. Success today is about so much more than just price, performance and qualitypure economic value. It is about emotion, passion, identitysharing your values. Obviously we all have to work on making our products and services more functional, more reliable and more affordable. But ultimately, the real separation in business is making our people and organizations more memorable to encounter. The key challenge for companies is to develop an emotional and psychological connection with their customers that separates them from everybody else. In this presentation, Bill Taylor offers lessons from innovators who maintain enduring connections with their customers.

  • THE HARD WORK OF BIG CHANGE: Transforming Your Organization and Challenging Yourself

    In an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the most urgent work for organizations everywhere is the work of making meaningful, deep-seated change. When customers have higher expectations than ever, digital technologies and new business models create more choices than ever, determined rivals are more numerous than ever, then familiar strategies and established ways of working are less effective than ever. That means even the most successful companies have to rethink and reimagine every aspect of how they do business and deliver results. But how do you break new ground when there is so much pressure to avoid mistakes? How do you keep people focused and confident in a world that seems so uncertain? In short, how do you unleash long-lasting, positive change in turbulent, fast-moving times?
