What are the fundamental issues in strategy that keep company CEOs awake late in the night? In this session the participants will join in on discussing about the "unsolved strategic challenges" CEOs face while trying to cope with the ever-transforming global economy. A dialogue between two local industrial companies and the SMS audience will take place to address how to best strategize to keep pace with the rapid changes in the global business field. The companies sharing their experiences are VakuumPraha, a local medium sized specialist and a major exporter of vacuum technologies and ON-Semiconductor, a manufacturer for semiconductor industry and a unit of a global conglomerate based in Arizona. The SMS audience is challenged to identify similarities and differences in the challenges the industrial companies face across the globe and provide suggestions and solutions, in the light of local experiences. The session format is interactive and engaging in discussion.
