Think Tanks and Visionary Teams: The Right to Be a Navigator
11 November 2020
The world today is marked by increasing competition — between companies, corporations, countries, and regions. The events of this year have demonstrated how dynamically and rapidly the world can change. The managerial sector is also in increasingly greater need of high-quality data and analysis. Organizations which provide analysis, forecasts, and other data play a key role in shaping the current agenda. To a certain extent, they also determine how the future will look. As agents of change and drafters of the intellectual agenda, authoritative organizations of this kind can help maintain economic and societal balance during crises and act as intellectual drivers of sustainable development over the long term. The knowledge offered by think tanks and visionary organizations is frequently the result of close collaboration with other public bodies. The world is becoming decentralized, and ties within society and the economy are becoming more complex. In these conditions, a large interconnected network of professionals can provide access to local and industry-specific audiences, and help organizations and individuals keep abreast of developments in the economy and society. This expert discussion will focus on how think tanks and visionary institutions are changing their role and way they work as agents shaping the intellectual agenda at a time of technological revolution in the wake of the pandemic. Topics for discussion:
● Think tanks and visionary organizations during a global pandemic: what is their expected — and actual — role?
● The agenda of think tanks and visionary organizations in a post-COVID world. The main points of divergence.
● What potential and forms of network collaboration will think tanks and visionary organizations offer moving forward?
