Nordic High Performance Business Forum
—From Fragile to Agile. Fast

28th of March, 2017 – Lokomotivværkstedet,

Otto Busses Vej 5A, 2450 Copenhagen SV

From 15.30 to 20.30


The pace of change is gaining speed, driven by increasing customer expectations, new technologies and tightening competition. Changes disrupt the market overnight and the ability to prepare for and respond fast to these changes has become a key competence for all kinds of organizations. Some Nordic players have begun the journey toward digital and are employing agile components like liquid workforce, automation and are changing their fundamental culture.

But most haven’t gone far enough. As a result, they’re fragile—vulnerable to agile rivals. How can companies change to become more responsive? And change fast?

Moving from fragile and rigid operating models to agile and responsive ones is the theme for Accenture’s Nordic High Performance Business Forum 2017. This year’s event will bring together more than 1,000 executives in four simultaneous and digitally enabled events in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm.


At this year’s Nordic High Performance Business Forum, we will discuss ways to challenge existing structures to become more agile for continuous transformation. We will also explore winning moves from Nordic and global players highlighted by our new research as well as agile ways of working including liquid workforce, robotics and automation to match the digital paradigm.
Be a part of an evening of inspiration, insight and networking—and get a glimpse of what the digital future has in store for us.
