Pioneering Business Transformation with Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe

Thursday, November 16, 2017 @ 11:45 am

In 2011, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen and his leadership team made one of the boldest moves ever seen in the software industry. They declared they would move their highly profitable desktop software business entirely to the cloud, disrupting the company’s business model, customer relationships and investor expectations. What followed became a Harvard Business School case study on how to pioneer a business transformation, and resulted in a new business that generates over $2b+ in annual revenues, is growing at 20%+ per year, and processes over 100 trillion transactions annually. 
 
Join us on November 16 to hear from Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen, dubbed “The Turnaround Artist” by Barron’s Magazine. Shantanu will share lessons from Adobe’s transformation journey that can be applied to any industry. Narayen will also share his perspectives on how the latest technology trends -- including areas like artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) -- will shape the future business landscape. 
 
Registered attendees will receive a copy of the HBS case study “Reinventing Adobe” in advance of the event. Please arrive promptly for a seated lunch at noon, ahead of the day’s presentation. 
 
Special thanks to Adobe for their generous support of this event.
