On March 19th, at the virtual Horasis Global Meeting our CEO Ralf Hirt will be chairing the panel ‘Thriving Corporate IQs Require Smart Systems’. One of the biggest challenges growth companies face is that executive management teams and their boards are going to get misaligned throughout strategy cycles. Teams are getting lost in their day-to-day work and fire drills instead of always focusing on what really matters the most. What is the next-gen approach for this so that knowledge meets empowering technology infrastructure?

Horasis is a global visions community committed to inspiring our future. In the 15 years of its existence, Horasis’ summits have become some of the most influential high-level global gatherings which every year bring together governments, international organizations, and the business community to offer solutions to global challenges.
