2020 Edition

Theme: Preparing for Tomorrow, Today

The conference proposed the following questions to be debated: What does the future hold for people, organizations, networks, societies and economies? What challenges will redefine the overall landscape? What is going to turn into yesterday’s news or is prone to become tomorrow’s MUST? What can we do about it? The COVID-19 pandemic added to this debate insightful considerations related to crisis management. Maybe more than ever, meeting tomorrow mirrors articulate visions, irreplaceable resources, strong engagement, and open minds, all of them embodied by farsighted leaders. Going by the book in an exclusive manner has fallen short to be the norm, foregoing the imperative of change becoming the norm itself. The only admissible standard for tomorrow is innovating today on solid, yet flexible grounds.

The 2020 edition of Strategica (October 15-16, 2020) was a special one.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference was online. It was attended by over 150 participants from the following countries: Romania, US, Brazil, Maroc, Letonia, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Lithuania, and Russia.

The conference agenda is available here.
