Transform or Die: Companies Must Continually Adapt to the Changing Global Economic Environment or Risk Failure, Says Ram Charan
SHANGHAI - Thursday, October 31st 2013 [ME NewsWire]

Noted business advisor and author to speak to more than 450 senior global executives at Hay Group conference in November

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Seismic transformation of economic opportunity and geopolitical power from advanced countries in the North to countries of the South is taking place at breakneck speed. What is this context in which corporations of the future will thrive or decline?

In his plenary session speech to senior executives in November at the Hay Group International Conference in Shanghai, international business advisor and author, Ram Charan, will argue that even though these are challenging times, they are also rich in potential for those who can develop the right mindset. Charan says that the old rule book should be rewritten, and will set out the principles that will inform the new rule book.

"The world is going through such a huge transformation and so frequently that there is not room for the status quo,” says Charan. "You miss something by two or three years and your company could go under. You can be defensive or you can go on the offensive.”

Hay Group’s International Conference is being held on 27 and 28 November 2013 in Shanghai, China. The theme of this year’s conference is "Leading Transformation.” The programme for the conference includes a roster of high-profile speakers who will share inspirational and provocative stories of organisational transformation and why effective leaders have made transformation business as usual and not a one-off process.

"We know that business leaders will benefit from hearing these first-hand perspectives of leaders who have executed significant transformation in their organizations,” said Stephen Kaye, President and CEO of Hay Group.

In his book Global Tilt, Ram Charan says that countries in the South, that is, generally speaking, below the 31st parallel, are more and more able to write their own rules about engaging in the global economy. "When you have a country like China,” says Charan, "and they have three to four trillion dollars in reserves and they have the markets that the people in the North want to capture, then they have begun to set the rules.”
