2018 ICMCI Annual Meeting of Delegates & 6th International CMC Conference
October 16-19, 2018
Milan, Italy

Plans are underway for the hosting of the 6th CMC International Conference & Annual Meeting of Delegates in Milan, Italy on October 16-19 2018, under the theme:

How creative thinking and disruptive innovation shape our future

The conference aims at providing answers to the following key questions: 

  • To what extent the unprecedented innovations we are facing are impacting our business and our lives? 
  • How this affects Management Consulting industry? 
  • Do they require specific approaches for our clients? 
  • How should we add value at social and economic level?

The fourth industrial revolution started long ago and we, as management consultants, cannot give up the opportunity to think about the future of our clients from a 2020 perspective. We need to continuously innovate our practices if we want to compete effectively and grow. To do this we need a new approach to innovation, collaborative and transversal, which involves at the forefront all the stakeholders: such as the entrepreneurial system, the institutions, the public administrations and the academic world.

The enterprise of the future is innovative, sustainable and interconnected. 
It integrates the results of scientific advances in processes, products and services, it removes environmental constraints, it enhances the potential for development of ICT technologies and it improves efficiency and production capacity.

Beyond sustainability practices of the past, we need a renewed paradigm to shape our future – and it could be appropriate to speak now about “sustainability 4.0” – a challenge that can revive the production system, enhancing the characteristics of creativity and quality of production and services, to benefit the growth and well-being of our countries.

Join us to share experiences and explore management consulting practices for effectively making a sustainable world through creative thinking and disruptive innovation connected to the new UN Sustainable Development Goals.  http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/
