Strategy& at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2014

As a selected Strategic Partner of the World Economic Forum, we strongly support the Forum's commitment to improve the state of the world.

The theme of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting held in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland from January 22-25, 2014, was “The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Politics, Business and Society.”

Strategy& (Formerly Booz & Company) CEO Cesare Mainardi participated in the CEO panel on Organizational Agility & Learning in a Complex World on January 23. A key question discussed was: How can organizations become more agile in a fast-paced and complex world? Some of the dimensions addressed included rethinking planning and discovery, achieving efficiency and resilience, and balancing long-term vision and rapid learning.
