Leading the Future with Disruptive Innovation

Today, the digital revolution has exposed abundant value opportunities for companies to raise efficiency and develop new kinds of products, services, and business models. A small group of outstanding players across industries and economies has shown that large incumbents can innovate, release trapped value, compete with disruptors—and even act as disruptors. These companies are executing what we call a “wise pivot”—a way to reinvent themselves and harness the power of disruption. They are using data, digital tools, and new ways of working to optimize and grow the core business, even as they build a future business.

Accenture’s Innovation Summit 2019 will bring together some of the best talents and leaders in Saudi Arabia to discuss some of the best discussions on innovation such as trapped value, risk, and the latest technology trends in Saudi Arabia.

Join us on April 24, at Accenture Innovation Summit 2019 to see how leaders can act now to take their digital transformation to the next level, shape new technology and innovation strategies and set a new series of endgames in their sights.
