Jay Rao: Using Entrepreneurial Leadership to Navigate Uncertainty

Professor, Strategy and Innovation, Babson College

How do you innovate and change in a competitive environment?

The world is experiencing increasing levels of uncertainty. This new world requires a different type of leader – the entrepreneurial leader. Entrepreneurial Leaders lead and navigate change.

This change is cultural, and strategy, innovation and leadership cannot be addressed
independently and in isolation. Entrepreneurial Leaders are risk managers as well as
uncertainty navigators.

Jay Rao will discuss how to make decisions using incomplete information and how to forge into the future with disciplined and deliberate experiments that combine emergent and analytical strategies.
