The Presentation Covers These Ideas

The Tech Factor explores the success factors for business in three phases of business. The innovation phase, the growth phase and the scaling phase.Each phase asks for a different set of skills and technology. They drive for different core competencies and tech opportunities. We unpack each of these in three sections:


Looking at how innovation creates the future. We discuss key success points of innovation and how technology makes all the difference.


Technology in the growth phase of business provides exponential opportunity to grow a business quickly through social, web and software technologies.


Agility gets harder when you're bigger. We look at how businesses can leverage technology to remain sensitive to their markets, become agile and achieve higher profit ratios.
