On December 20, 2015, HKU Space will hold its first Open Day in Chengdu, Sichuan. It will also launch the latest management concepts and use the construction of thinking to deal with the challenges and changes of “Internet+” in the fast times. In the meanwhile, Dr. Toa Charm is going to share his valuable opinions on “When Strategy Meets Internet+”

今天,移动互联网正铺天盖地颠覆我们的生活,成为生活逃脱不开的场域。对消费者而言一切都变得更透明、便宜、快捷,并开始掌控更多主动权。

但企业的境遇却大不相同, 有的搭上了互联网产业的大船, 抓住机会转型, 有的却夜夜做着被新生对手颠覆的噩梦。

作为一个经营者, 在开始怀疑互联网时代品牌还能有多少忠诚度的今天, 互联网思维是拯救传统产业的利器吗?互联网化或是利用社会化营销能为商业战争带来多少胜算?

当“战略”遇上“互联网+”,我们到底是颠覆还是认怂?

9Dr. Toa Charm is invited by Drucker Academy to share his valuable opinions on the topic of “Strategic Thinking in the Digital Era” in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 9 Dec, 2015.

The talk will mainly focus on:

  • Why is strategic thinking more important than ever in the digital era?
  • How leaders should think strategically in the digital era?
  • Are what Drucker taught us about Strategic Thinking still useful? If yes, how can we leverage on his wisdom and experience?

In the Internet age, the Internet businesses are crossing the border,  challenging and overturning the traditional enterprises like a great scourge. Ma Huateng even made four motions in the NPC, one of which is the “Internet+ecology” strategy. On 2015 August 9th, Peking University HSBC Business School invited Dr. Toa Charm to attend a workshop in Shenzhen. Dr. Charm would share his view on how Chinese and foreign enterprises could face the challenge of the Internet business and how they could create their own “Internet+” environment. 

在互联网时代,很多传统企业都感到忧虑甚至恐慌。互联网企业像洪水猛兽般跨界挑战及颠覆这些传统企业,多年行之有效的策略、商业模式及核心竞争力全都不适用。是否互联网企业占尽上风?是否传统企业巳难以翻身,必定走下跛及面向死亡?看看互联网领军马云及马化腾如何看这题本。马云说,若互联网企业不能好好融合鼠标与水泥,互联网企业会很麻烦。马化腾更在全国人大提出了四项议案,其中一项就是〝互联网+生态〞战略。今年三月份,第十二届全国人民代表大会第三次会议在人民大会堂举行,李克强总理在报告中,首次提出制定〝互联网+〞行动计划。李克强在政府工作报告中提出,制定〝互联网+〞行动计划,推动移动互联网、云计算、大数据、物联网等与现代制造业结合,促进电子商务、工业互联网和互联网金融健康发展,引导互联网企业拓展国际市场。事实上,传统企业在〝互联网+〞的战略是有其优势,例如线下的资源整全。〝互联网+〞概念的提出,让中国互联网行业以及传统行业的从业者都有了压力。谁能最终获取胜利就看谁能有效融合各方优点,制定合适的〝互联网+〞战略。湛博士会与本论坛的参与者分享中外传统企业如何面对互联网企业的挑战及如何创建她们的〝互联网+〞新天地。

In the Internet age, the Internet businesses are crossing the border,  challenging and overturning the traditional enterprises like a great scourge. Ma Huateng even made four motions in the NPC, one of which is the “Internet+ecology” strategy. On 2015 August 8th, HKU SPACE Institute of China Business invited Dr. Toa Charm to make a speech in Beijing. Dr. Charm would share his view on how Chinese and foreign enterprises could face the challenge of the Internet business and how they could create their own “Internet+” environment. 

互联网时代,很多传统企业都感到忧虑甚至恐慌。互联网企业像洪水猛兽般跨界挑战及颠覆这些传统企业,多年行之有效的策略、商业模式及核心竞争力全都不再适用。

是否互联网企业占尽上风?

是否传统企业已难以翻身,必定走下坡路或是面向死亡?

看看互联网领军人物马云、马化腾如何看待这一话题。马云说,若互联网企业不能好好融合鼠标与水泥,互联网企业会很麻烦。马化腾更在全国人大提出了四项议案,其中一项就是〝互联网+生态〞战略。2015年3月“两会”期间,李克强总理在政府工作报告中首次提出,制定〝互联网+〞行动计划,推动移动互联网、云计算、大数据、物联网等与现代制造业结合,促进电子商务、工业互联网和互联网金融健康发展,引导互联网企业拓展国际市场。

事实上,传统企业在〝互联网+〞的战略是有其优势的,例如线下的资源整合。〝互联网+〞概念的提出,让中国互联网行业以及传统行业的从业者都有了压力。谁能最终获取胜利,就看谁能有效融合各方优点,制定合适的〝互联网+〞战略。

湛博士将与讲座的参与者分享中外传统企业如何面对互联网企业的挑战,以及如何创建它们的〝互联网+〞新天地。
