The Power of Co

Keeping up with the place of change requires organisations to work in new ways, putting the customer at the core, leverage data adopt digital tools, partner more widely and make decisions much faster in the past. It is much harder to change culture and habits than to implement new processes or technology platforms.

Kris will talk about the "Power of Co" as a means of designing and delivering real and 'sticky' change in organisations. The Power of Co spans co-design, collaboration, co-opetition, co-creating customer value, to name a few. He will use real client examples where PwC has leveraged the Power of Co to create a high performance culture.
