Ideas and insights for today’s people-centered leaders.



Announcing the Outsmart 2019 Speaker Lineup

Taking place May 6-8, 2019 in San Francisco, Visier Outsmart 2019 is the people analytics and workforce planning conference dedicated to your success as a data-driven leader. In this article, discover the Outsmart 2019 speaker lineup.

Today’s organizations need to be more resilient, creative and engaging than ever before. This is why we’re excited to have iconoclastic business thinker Gary Hamel present our keynote at Visier Outsmart 2019!

Hamel–who Fortune magazine called the “the world’s leading expert on business strategy”–will be presenting on Humanocracy: Building organizations as amazingly capable as those inside them. Here’s a snippet of what you can expect from his keynote:

To close the gap we need data—on employee attitudes, skills and productivity, on leadership traits and effectiveness, on the talent pipeline and employee churn, on the climate for innovation and the capacity to change. But data by itself will not be enough to create organizations that are fit for the future and fit for human beings.

To make progress we have to face facts. The top-down, rule-driven bureaucratic structures that predominate in most organizations are now a competitive liability. We need to uninstall bureaucracy and rebuild our organizations around new, post-bureaucratic principles: openness, meritocracy, community, experimentation, and ownership. The goal: organizations that are as adaptable, innovative and inspiring as the people inside of them.

In this provocative and practical talk, Hamel will show you how to kick start an HR revolution that will free up every human being to be their best and do their best.
