It's time to REPAIR, RENEW, and REINVENT.
The "America on the Move" Summit will engage CEOs and top leaders across sectors in dialogue to prioritize:
- PPBs (pain points and bottlenecks) that can be removed
- Innovations that can be applied -- vehicles, connections, finance, technology
- Opportunities for leaders to act -- private, public, local, regional, national
Chaired by HBS Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter and informed by new research on industry change and cutting edge projects, "America on the Move" will listen to providers and users to find smart solutions -- getting people to work, goods to where they're needed, information circulating, communities connecting, economies developing... safely, efficiently, conveniently, sustainably.
