I am starting a movement for the people who own the future. The people who know about corporate transformation based on exponential growth, digitalization, disruption and innovation.

We are the people who make things happen because of what we know, who we know and who we are. We are corporate business leaders, entrepreneurs, advisors, academics and many others. We are young talents, we are at the top of our careers and we are the veterans still eager to make a difference. We are from all over the world. But most important: We are doers, who get things done. We are a clear minority in our world of business and society today and our goal is to not only inspire the majority, but also inject our way of thinking and doing into how business and society should work already today and most definitely in the future.

The movement is called Transform – or Die! I am on a mission to recruit like-minded people and work with them to make an impact in our time. We can do this in many ways and there will be lots of experimentation to make the most impact. I am taking the first steps by setting up a platform so that our voices can heard and our actions can be felt. Through the platform, I will curate the best and most relevant information and insights, develop original thoughts and perspectives through our interactions and bring people together around the world through events, sessions, webinars and specific calls to action.

You can join me in two ways.

Transform Friends: This is a hand-picked group of high-impact people from around around the world. We help each other when needed and possible. High quality people doing great things. I only bring friends into our circle when I have had specific interactions with them (at best face to face interactions) – and when they live up to a few, simple criteria.

Our activities within Transform Friends focus on three things:

– Transform Talks: high-quality, high-impact half-day sessions for 15-25 people. Only Transform Friends – and people they recommend – are invited for these sessions where we focus on cases and discussions rather than presentations.
– Study tours to Silicon Valley
– Informal sessions and meet-ups around the world

There is a EUR 1,500 to join Transform Friends for 2016. Send me an e-mail to stefanlindegaard@me.com if you want to discuss this.

Get insights and invitations: Sign up to get the insights from the work with do in Transform Friends and invitations for our open sessions and activities. Just use the form on this page.

Our ideology – work in progress!

Here you get some of my quotes that can help us define the ideology behind Transform – or Die! Do they resonate with you? Join us! And feel free to add other quotes.

“Four global megatrends drive business today: Everything moves faster, everything will be connected, knowledge is transparent and disruption hits harder and faster.”

“Why does transformation matter? Stay relevant, survive and prosper!”

“Don’t talk about innovation. Focus on how you can transform your company based on values, assets, partners, threats and opportunities.”

“The language of innovation and how people understand the term is vague and fuzzy at best; dangerous at worst. This can cripple organizations.”

“There is no such thing as an innovation culture. If you can’t even develop a common language and understanding around the term innovation, how can you then create a culture around it? Answer: You can’ so stop talking about an innovation culture!”

“The organizational structures need to change. They are not build for the upcoming challenges and opportunities and we need to experiment much more on what will work the best for the future of business.”

“Disruption hits much harder and much faster than ever before. You can’t plan for disruptive or radical innovation, but you can be sure you will be disrupted.”

“Strong organizations do four things very well: They listen, adapt, experiment and execute better than their competitors.”

“Corporate transformation. How do you get started? What is the right structure? Experiment! A hint: Go all in on digital!”

“Work with the unusual suspects – internally as well as externally.”

“External collaboration can only reach its full potential when all business functions get involved. Go beyond products and technologies; solve challenges, but don’t forget to pursue opportunities.”

“Learn to communicate better and differently – or fail!”

”If you want to change the perception inside your organization, the outside voice is the most important.”

“Strong change teams know they can´t do it by themselves; they become facilitators and integrators. Education is a key objective.”

“People first, processes next, then ideas. The key for execution is people – don´t focus too much on ideas and projects.”

“Discovery – Incubation – Acceleration: Have the right people for the right project at the right time in the right context. Build people pools, not just project pools.”

“Everyone ask themselves a very simple question: What´s in it for me? – know the answer before you start your initiatives.”
