Monday September 10

Setting the Scene 

The first day of the Bootcamp might be a little bit unsettling. But that’s all part of the plan: this is where we’ll open your eyes to a new reality, and that might take some getting used to.  But don’t worry: we'll use the rest of the week to explore ways to cope with it.

Tuesday September 11

Spotlight on the Customer

Are you up for another round of changing the way you look at the world? Our speakers will show you how to put your customer at the very heart of your company and how this approach will impact your Day after Tomorrow.

Wednesday September 12

Technology as Facilitator

How can big companies act as flexible and fast as little start-ups? On this third bootcampday we will dive deeper in agile workflows and the lean start-up methodology often used by them. We also get some playtime with a whole range of spacy technologies, from AI to AR and VR. They will catapult you ahead of the competition in quantum leaps.

Thursday September 13

Innovation in Company Structures 

On Thursday you will have to think about your organization in the Day After Tomorrow, where cocreation and collaboration are the keywords. You’ll see how to connect many colleagues and customers, which makes more engaged individuals/employees with efficient innovation ideas. On that -almost last- day you will see a lot of challenges but our workshops will make you see the trees through the forest. Let’s get creative!

Friday September 14

Wrapping It Up!

Today is about wrapping it all up. Together, we'll summarize what we saw this week. More importantly, we'll take a look into the future and the challenges ahead of us. Both for ourselves as professionals, and also the businesses we are working in. We'll make sure to go out with a bang. But no worries, this is no goodbye!

Bootcamp Reunion December 19
