EXECUTIVE BRIEF

Today's financial crisis proved that being smart, connected, and future-oriented is not enough. To establish a leadership position and sustain a competitive economic edge, Future Capitals and their leaders and enterprises must be able to forecast, acquire, and sustain breakthrough leadership competences. 

This session answers the following questions:

  • To what extent can cities moderate the effects of the current crisis by improving the knowledge base of their leadership and the innovation of their support teams? 
  • What demonstration projects are needed in cities to prove the concept of  "competing on competence"? 
  • How can existing competence initiatives be specialized to meet the needs of Future Capitals; meaning redirected, repurposed, and commercialized to create super-competent cities?
  • What collaborations among industry, universities, and government can lead to competence networks?
  • How can competence networks be created in individual companies, industries, and cities?
