2019 Rodney Wylie Eminent Visiting Fellowship Lecture

Why businesses must change to thrive in the age of disruption, presented by Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner Emeritus and Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company.

In this year’s Rodney Wylie lecture, Dominic Barton spoke about how and why, with these shifting global dynamics, businesses must change to thrive in our new reality.

There are four forces transforming the global landscape at an unprecedented pace and scale: changing global growth dynamics, accelerating industry disruption, an aging population and searching for a new “societal ideal.”
