We are in a time of unbelievable change.  From politics to the economy to society to technology, old ways of thinking and acting are giving way to entirely new modes of thought and behavior.  Disruption is now expected, and turmoil, unrest, and instability are the new standards.  As a strategic advisor to executives in numerous organizations, Dr. Buchko will frame the magnitude of the transformations that are occurring around us, noting similarities to historical times of seeming disorder while providing some structure to understanding the magnitude and speed of the shifts that are occurring in the environments of organizations and executives.  Professor Buchko teaches strategic planning and management classes (among others) for the Foster College of Business and will share his business expertise from his professional career.
