The odds are never in your favor when it comes to games of chance like roulette, craps, and blackjack. But if you’re in the gamblers’ paradise known as Las Vegas for Adaptive Live 2019, you’ll go home a winner.
That’s a promise you can take to the bank.
Some 1,600 finance and planning professionals from around the world will gather in Vegas at our annual user conference to explore where business planning is headed at a time when change is accelerating. Why has this year’s event attracted our largest number of attendees ever?
The conference theme, Plan for What’s Next, offers a clue.
We’re headed toward a big change in how organizations must operate—a change in the way they plan, execute, and measure their activities in the service of their strategic objectives. Business agility is now a determining factor for success in today’s data-driven, fast-paced world. To think fast and move first, companies must embrace a new model or risk watching their competitors leave them behind.
Increasingly, planning is the key.
Businesses have always planned as a way to connect the dots between what happened yesterday and what may happen tomorrow. Planning is a way to prepare for the future—a way to weigh and explore the possibilities of what might be coming next. But rigid, old-world planning processes, established at a time when business was more predictable, are no longer fit for today’s dynamic world.
A blueprint for charting the future
At Adaptive Live, business planners from organizations of all kinds will learn how to adapt the way they create, plan, and execute operational strategies in response to a rapidly changing environment. Our breakout sessions and mainstage keynotes will provide a guide for businesses to chart their futures in this ever-changing digital world. Think of it as a rallying cry to shrug off outdated static planning processes and adopt an active planning environment to help your business plan for what’s next.
We’ll also share how the Adaptive Insights experience will get even better now that we’re a part of the Workday family. This is the first year we’re hosting Adaptive Live as a Workday company, and we’ll be digging into what that means for you and all our customers, no matter what ERP solutions you use.
Who should attend?
If you’re a decision-maker, executive, or stakeholder who helps plan for the future of your group, department, or division, Adaptive Live is the place to be—where you develop your own road map for transforming the finance function and chart your planning journey in an increasingly fast-paced world. You’ll learn new ways to face complexity, change, and challenges head-on, while gaining the agility every business needs to thrive in a world that refuses to stand still.
Create your brightest future with Peter Diamandis
And that brings us to our guest keynote at Adaptive Live 2019.

In his Adaptive Live keynote, Diamandis will look closely at the importance of business innovation in the age of urgency. He’ll show how once businesses embrace both the challenges and the opportunities for digital transformation, they begin thinking more about the ways innovation and digital disruption can help them win in the marketplace.
Diamandis is known for inspiring audiences to drive breakthrough thinking and innovation, and that relates to today’s business planners and the challenges they face. At Adaptive Live 2019, Diamandis will share ways individuals can contribute to their organization’s digital transformation journey and empower them to deliver on our conference theme, Plan for What’s Next.
