PMI South Event

Black Swan Hunting

19th April 2018 AT 5.45pm

ENI House, Basing View, Basingstoke, RG214YY

Main Speaker: Dr. David Hillson

The future is uncertain! This makes some people very nervous and worried, while others see it as a challenge to be overcome. Either way, we cannot simply sit back and wait for the future to arrive. Instead we need to engage proactively with the future, seeking to position and prepare ourselves to succeed.

The problem is that many future uncertainties are unknowable, leading to emergent risks that catch us unawares. These emergent risks are popularly known as Black Swans, and it is very hard for us to prepare for them in advance. Or is it?

In this presentation, David Hillson explains how to identify the conditions that lead to emergent risk, and how to develop robust responses for whatever might arise. Resilience is the key, building flexibility and capacity into our organisations and projects, so that we can bounce back to success, even if a Black Swan emerges in our midst.

Emergent risk matters, and unknowable does not mean unmanageable. Discover how to predict when a Black Swan is coming your way, how to protect your organisation and its projects from unexpected risk, and how to position yourself to survive and thrive. Kill the Black Swans before they kill you!
