Anders Indset is one of the world’s leading business philosophers. He is the co-founder of the management think tank ‘ShapingWork’ where he has outlined a new academic approach that combines practical, applicable philosophy with best practices from leadership, management and execution.
Anders’ unique style and combination of visionary ideas matched with concrete solutions makes his gigs an inspirational, instructive and relevant event for the audience. Known for his unconventional thoughts and rock star attitude Anders offers a new perspective on the “art of thinking” and tangible ways of how managers and leaders can handle the current speed of change. By bridging the philosophy of the past with the technology and science of tomorrow, he shows how leaders can cope with the 21st century.
Anders states that practical philosophy is now necessary as the nonsense clouding today’s business world can no longer be tolerated due to advances in technology which have created more and more transparency in our complex world. He argues that in 10 years we will not be searching for more software engineers, but for people that can bring contemplation of philosophy to the business world. Thinkers50, the premier ranking of global business thinkers, regarded as the “Oscars of Management Thinking” by many, has recognised Anders on the Radar 2018 as one of 30 Global Thinkers “most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led”. He is a visiting guest lecturer at leading international business schools and involved with various tech start-ups.
