Framing the Future
Twenty years after BioOne’s founding, the organization has largely achieved its initial mission. It’s not alone. Across the information industry, onetime bold visions mature, and disruptive models and technologies become the norm. When your raison d'être is no longer resonant, or your innovation is no longer innovative, what do you do? How do you pivot while still focusing on the present – especially in small teams? How do you assess your value and frame your contribution in a market and ecosystem that is evolving?
This session will explore how content organizations are addressing the challenge of simultaneously staying the course and looking to the future, balancing the need for both current success and long-term impact. More than strategic foresight, this requires an organizational culture of collaboration, data-driven decision-making, patience, and critically – new perspectives.
