Each CEO a Futurist
Nearly all franchise CEO’s are charged with setting a course based on prior experience and current trends as on a best-guess forecast of what’s to come. Three leading enterprise level CEO’s will sit on the panel in which they discuss their predictions on the top issues, ideas, challenges, and changes franchise CEO’s will be discussing this time next year and the process they undertake to stay ahead of the pack.
Feeding Cultural Transformation
Culture can drive high-performance and innovation. It’s known to improve employee engagement and retention. Decision-makers will have to deal with leveraging new technologies designed to impact the workplace.
Keeping up with the Data Eruption
According to Domo, over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every single day-and it’s only expected to grow from there. With all this amassing data, it’s no surprise that in the year of GDPR regulation, we saw personal data surge as a hot-topic and a challenge. A more people and business decisions are influenced by data; leaders and decision-makers must continue to be vigilant in how they use their data to track behaviors and influence franchisees and consumers.
System Change in an Established Franchise
Facilitated by Brian Schnell, Faegre BD. During the session we will have a robust discussion on how the following impact difference-making system change: speed of change with ever-increasing customer demands for change; role of technology in all aspects of change; external regulatory forces that impact change (joint employer; consumer privacy laws, and others); franchisee concerns with system change (collaboration vs. command and control); unit level economics is important with system change, but other strategic considerations are important; and more.
