Upcoming Alumni Knowledge Video Webcast - Global Flows in a Digital Age: How Trade, Capital, People, and Data are Connecting the World Economy
May 07, 2014

11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. EDT

The global web of economic interconnections between countries is growing ever larger and more complex. In a forthcoming report, experts from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) and the McKinsey High Tech Practice examine the evolution of five types of global flow: goods, services, finance, people, and the data and communications flows that underlie the other four. During this session, our presenters will share how digitization is changing the scale, composition, and reach of global flows, and why companies, policy makers, and individuals need to ensure they keep pace with the change and adapt their thinking and approach if they are to take full advantage of the economic benefits of global flows while minimizing their risks.

April 29, 2014

12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. EDT

Disruptive innovators have brought profound changes to many industries, by introducing simplicity, convenience, accessibility, and affordability at the bottom of the market, and then relentlessly moving up market, to eventually displace established industry leaders. Harvard Business School Professor Clay Christensen is widely regarded as the father of Disruption Theory, and has authored many books and articles on the topic, including "Consulting on the Cusp of Disruption” recently published in Harvard Business Review. Join Clay and Managing Director Dominic Barton as they discuss the challenges and importance of self-disruption in professional services, and how firms more broadly - and McKinsey in particular - are overcoming these challenges to develop innovative methods of delivering new and continued client impact.
