Larry Quick is a strategist with significant global experience in both the corporate and civic sectors. He is the co-author of “Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change”, the original developer of the Strategy in Action framework and the founder of Resilient Futures.

For over twenty years Larry has researched the areas of disruption and resilience while helping organisations get on the front-foot in leveraging disruption – in all its forms. In his view disruption promises significant strategic opportunity and must be approached as a tailwind and not a headwind.

Few people genuinely understand systemic disruption. So having a practical guide from Larry Quick to advise on strategies for leveraging new possibilities is highly valuable.Richard Hames, CEO, Centre for the Future

Larry also draws upon a recent study by Resilient Futures titled – Disruption 2016: What Australian Business Leaders Think. The survey provides rich data and compelling insight as to where Australian organisations are at in their understanding and approach to disruption – both digital, and other.

Larry has worked extensively in Australia and the USA. His clients have included IBM, Ausnet, Telstra, GM Holden Australia and GM Asia Pacific, Rhode Island Economic Policy Council, Stamford Urban Redevelopment Commission, Stamford Centre for Innovation, US National Science Foundation, CSIRO Australia and a variety of federal, state and local government agencies.

He is a highly experienced public speaker and has lectured at several universities and business schools including The Mount Eliza Business School, Boston College, Edith Cowan University and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).

A cancer survivor Larry is “committed to squeezing every ounce out of life that this great world can bring”. Larry lives in Woodend, Victoria with his wife Helen.

Larry Quick’s Speaking Topics

Disruption: Headwind or Tailwind

In this presentation, Larry calls on and equips organisations to see disruptive change – both digital and other – as a means to grow strategic capability and position organisations to generate sustainable value in a fast-changing future.

Key messages include:

  • Welcome to the Wake-up: The Factors of Disruption that Can Be Leveraged
  • People Don’t Get Exponential: Making the Most of Change Cycles
  • Disruption is a State of Mind … and Management
  • Leveraging Disruption – Think Strategy in Action

Larry draws on the twenty plus years of research behind ‘Disrupted’ to illustrate the immense potential in leveraging all manner of disruption, as a tailwind to drive opportunity – given the right approach to strategic thinking.

Disruption 2016: What Australian Business Leaders Think

In February 2016 Resilient Futures surveyed some 280 senior business leaders in Australia to ascertain their thoughts on disruption and how it will or may impact their organisation. The results of the report – Disruption 2016: What Australian Business Leaders Think – provides rich data and compelling insight as to where Australian organisations are at in their understanding and approach to disruption – both digital, and other.

In this presentation Larry provides insight into the findings of the study and is able to provide compelling arguments as to why organisations must address disruption sooner rather than later.

Topics addressed in the survey include:

  • The level of impact of specific technologies
  • Other disruptors including the impact of new business models, new global competition and cost of and access to capital.
  • The opportunities available in addressing and embracing disruption.
  • The risks of NOT addressing and embracing disruption.
  • The preparedness of organisations for addressing and embracing disruption.

Copies of the survey are available to participants who attend this presentation.

Larry Quick’s Master Classes

What are Your Disruptors? And How Will You Leverage Them?

In Disrupted readers are challenged to confront exponential change and ask themselves: What are our disruptors, and how will we leverage them?

In this workshop participants are exposed to the process of conditions analysis and in that environment draw out the disruptors – both strategic opportunities and strategic risks – that their organisation may be able to pursue and mitigate.

Concepts covered include:

  • The reality behind organisational decision-making
  • The true scale of our operating environment – immediate and emergent conditions at micro, macro and mega levels
  • Gaining a 360 degree of what may impact the organisation
  • Picking the patterns, leveraging the strategic opportunity-risks

Typical takeaways for participants include:

  • The key concepts of conditions analysis
  • The identification of disruptors that may impact their organisation
  • An understanding of the strategic opportunity-risks that their organisation might choose to actively pursue

This master class can be held over half-day, one-day or two-day session – dependent upon the depth of the dive into each of the topics and client needs.
