Overview

A Systematic Framework for Business Success Today and Tomorrow

When the U.S. financial meltdown struck last year, business leaders across America were asking the same questions: How deep will the recession be? How long will it last? When will our economy return to "normal" conditions?

Philip Kotler and John A. Caslione have a coined a term for what they believe is a new business environment filled with constant turbulence, risk, and uncertainty: Chaotics.

In this insightful Webcast, they will explain how Chaotics is the "new normal" impacting industries, markets, and companies in operation across the globe.

They'll explore why typical reactions to turbulence—from across-the-board staff cuts and deep price discounts to slashing investments in marketing, branding, and new product development—actually jeopardize a company's long-term survival.

Using specific examples, you will hear how smart organizations are navigating through turbulence—armed with insights, strategies, and tactics to resist vulnerability, exploit opportunity, and thrive in the worst and the best of times.

For you to truly understand the business landscape today and into the future you need to attend this program!
