Longevity: Insights from the World's Most Durable Companies
Tuesday, November 18th (11AM Boston, 5PM Paris)
Facilitators: Martin Reeves, Thijs Venema, Lisanne Pueschel

Compared to other man-made institutions, companies have never lived long. While businesses active in the mid-20th century at least had roughly human life spans, life expectancy for companies today has more than halved: few will stick around long enough to reach their 30th birthday. We all talk a lot about the pace of today's world and the need for agility to adapt to short-term challenges. But has this tightening focus on near-term risks possibly endangered long-term health? And what can we learn from those companies that beat the odds and outperformed consistently across a lengthy timescale? In this session, Martin, Thijs, and Lisanne from BCG's Strategy Institute aim to de-average the key drivers of decreasing company longevity and extract success factors from the world's most durable businesses.
