    Roger Martin Keynote Topics

    In this presentation, Martin debunks the unhelpful strategy myths that cause companies to do endless amounts of unproductive work. Instead, he helps leaders focus on what matters – founded on five interrelated, powerful choices. Audiences will walk away with actionable guidance for producing a strategy that makes a difference for their organizations.

    To innovate and win, Martin says companies need design thinking. In this presentation, he shows how leading companies such as Procter & Gamble, Cirque de Soleil, Lego and others link design principles to business strategies to produce systemic, consistent and profitable innovation and competitive advantage.

    Integrative thinking, a term Martin coined and introduced to the business world, isn’t an ability you’re born with – it’s something you can hone. In this presentation, he provides leaders with a proven methodology and practical guidance to cultivate their integrative thinking capacity, helping them create better choices than what they’re currently capable of making today.
