When the pace of change becomes faster than the speed of the environment’s response, there’s a “shock wave” effect that’s a lot like the sonic boom from a passing supersonic jet: your windows break before you can even hear the approaching noise. Peter will share observations on today’s shock wave changes, and offer “shock resistance” strategies for organizations.
This must-attend event is co-organized by 4 Los Angeles area Salesforce Trailblazer Community Groups and presented by OwnBackup.
