We have organized forums in cities around the world, using an interactive approach that relies on real-time and team-based content capturing and evaluation supported by various moderation and visualization techniques. The acquired knowledge and insights lead to fresh and promising approaches to longstanding and unresolved challenges in management. They have also helped to achieve political and regulatory changes globally.
