15:15 -18:00 DOCSF18 LEADERSHIP SUMMIT (presented by BTS).

Leading in the Teeth of Disruption. At the DOCSF18 Leadership Summit, we will discuss and explore how great leaders grow and scale today’s business while simultaneously encouraging the innovation needed to build the business of tomorrow. You and your fellow-attendees will engage in an interactive simulation in which you experience the pivotal moments leaders face on the job while tackling the challenges of transformation and exponential change. Along the way we will share some insights about how Fortune 500 firms around the globe are building their innovation leadership capabilities in the teeth of disruption, before discussing the practical implications of their triumphs and trials for the adoption of digital technology in the healthcare ecosystem.

What you can expect:  One of the key aspects of BTS's learning framework is to take leaders through virtual scenarios using computer based simulations. This type of experiential learning is far more effective at changing behavior and improving content retention than traditional educational frameworks. Here is how we will experience simulation at the DOCSF leadership summit with BTS.
 
SPARKING INNOVATION: CREATING YOUR ROADMAP (Part I)
During the first part of the simulation, we will explore why some organizations stifle innovation while others invest in making their workforce smarter, more competitive, and in turn, more innovative. We’ll analyze a case study and provide hypothetical advice to the CEO of a company struggling with a stalled strategic initiative to create a culture of innovation. You will learn how to set an innovation agenda, while exploring and defining the problem we are trying to solve. 
 
We will work through scenarios where you will answer the following questions: how do you respond to an eager and excited innovator whose idea (you know) won’t work, and how do you determine which innovative ideas are worthy of further refinement?
 
IDEATION AND EXPERIMENTATION (Part II)
In the second part of this simulation, we will work through additional scenarios involving the following concepts:
•         Testing ideas in the marketplace fast and cheap, generating institutional knowledge
•         Creating new ideas by challenging and breaking old patterns and orthodoxies
•         Rapid prototyping, co-creation, and stimulating a diversity of input
