With Paris Thomas, we were able to welcome Alexander Osterwalder and another strategist expert at the Agile100 in July. Since his lecture: “What can really happen when you build experiments as a corporate”, he impressed not only with the incredibly exciting topic, but also with Paris’ unique presentation technique. The use of eight (!) cameras set a new standard in the presentation of online conferences and generated virtual applause from the audience.
The core topic of the presentation was innovative companies and the special advantages they get from this mindset. As with Alexander Osterwalder’s “invincible companies” or the “living strategy” of a Markus Andrezak, Paris Thomas impressively demonstrated what companies are capable of when they have understood that they have to reinvent and develop themselves again and again. This culture of learning creates a thoroughly innovative climate in which companies can continually develop.
