Press Release: Leading Technology Futurist Daniel Burrus to Present The Anticipatory Organization: A Proven Model to Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results During HDAW 2019

Date: November 28, 2018

The organizers of Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week 2019 have announced Daniel Burrus, author, technology futurist, and CEO of Burrus Research, as the keynote speaker for the 14th annual conference in Las Vegas January 28-31, 2019. 
Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation.
With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends, teaching them to analyze and perceive trends this way and making it possible for them to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, which involves solving challenges faster and recognizing previously invisible opportunities. Mastering these capabilities will position business leaders to allow their organizations to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted — thus creating their competitive advantage and reducing risk.
This eye-opening and motivating presentation will teach attendees the key components of the new core competency—anticipation—and show them how to apply it to their work and life, accelerating both their organization’s growth and their own personal success.
Burris will show attendees how to identify the Hard Trends that will happen, predict disruptions before they disrupt, and capitalize on emerging opportunities for their businesses.  Attendees will learn how to separate Hard Trends—trends that will happen—from Soft Trends—trends that might happen.  Burris will discuss the benefits of Everyday Innovation, which allows organizations to solve challenges faster and recognize previously invisible opportunities, ultimately accelerating organizational growth and employee personal success.
