The global coronavirus pandemic forced virtually every enterprise to adapt to significant disruptions – closing offices, canceling travel, and asking employees to work from home. Organizations will still be adapting long after the pandemic fades away. Those that turn business disruptions into business opportunities will succeed. How to do so will be the focus of our virtual summit, “Embrace Uncertainty – How Enterprises Can Thrive on Continuous Change,” beginning on Tuesday, July 21.

The summit will comprise three one-hour sessions, with one session per day. Clarizen CEO Matt Zilli and guest speaker, Brian Hopkins, from Forrester will kick things off on July 21 with a strategic discussion around why work management is more than processes and technology – it’s about results and adaptability. As Zilli pointed out in his recent blog post, “every business can improve the impact of their work, even in the face of minor and major disruptions.”

On July 22 and 23, business leaders from McDonald’s, Cisco, Siemens, JLL, Publicis Groupe, ADP, and Root, Inc. – will share their unique experiences and lessons learned. They will address a wide range of topics including: how to build change-resilient teams, how to transform the way you work to not just do things differently, but to ultimately make a greater impact on your business. , and why it’s important to put plans on coming out of pandemic-imposed shutdowns into action as soon as possible.
