Exclusive McKinsey Roundtable on Strategy Beyond the Hockey Stick

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Zurich, Switzerland
Join one of the leaders of McKinsey’s Strategy & Corporate Finance Practice as he shares practical advice on how to change the social dynamics in your strategy room and unlock bigger, bolder, and better strategies to beat the odds.

Request an invitation to join an exclusive McKinsey senior-executive roundtable on Wednesday, September 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Zurich, hosted by senior partner Sven Smit, coauthor of the new book Strategy Beyond the Hockey Stick: People, Probabilities and Big Moves to Beat the Odds (John Wiley & Sons, February 2018).

Sven will lead a stimulating discussion on ways you can improve your strategy process. He will demonstrate how introducing data from thousands of companies can help you avoid the human biases and social dynamics that usually hold sway in strategy meetings. This session will help bring an “outside view” into your strategy process, revealing what really matters for unlocking the big moves needed to raise performance substantially.

Please request an invitation to join us on the evening of September 19, 2018. We will send formal confirmation to selected guests within two days of submission.
