Welcome to an exclusive workshop by Adrian Slywotzky, a business futurologist and one of the top 20 business consultants in the world. The theme of the workshop is ‘How can small teams win in the global world?’, and it will take place in Kyiv on February 27th.
Today there are teams that turn $1 into $2, and there are some teams that make $20 from $1. How does it work with them? Where do we look for breakthrough ideas? How can we turn a small idea into a big one? How do we spend less to make more? How do you win a war when you are weaker?
The workshop by a contemporary guru of business management will provide insights to these questions. This event will give you a unique opportunity to visit a discussion of famous experts and to join the first original online course by Adrian Slywotzky and Lviv Business School of UCU, called ‘David Wins: the Discipline of a Disproportionate Victory’.

About the Online Course
With this original online course by Adrian Slywotzky and LvBS, you will get to know in detail the model of asymmetric competition that consists of eight main levers: scale, mistake, speed, thrift, access, algorithm, magnetism, and story. This model can be traced in such famous leaders as Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk. Moreover, the history of asymmetric competition has its roots in the distant past. In fact, David – though small and unarmed – managed to overpower the giant Goliath with a spear and a shield. One well-aimed stone can change the course of what seems a hopeless battle. The secret is in eight levers. During this online course, we will consider each one of them in detail, and analyze how leading international companies use these levers, and how you can use them in your own companies and projects.
