DISRUPTION IS A LOUSY SPECTATOR SPORT

 

WHY DOES DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION AND LEADERSHIP MATTER?

All organisations and their customers are challenged by complexity and disruption, and this can directly impact an organisation’s revenue streams. Organisations whose revenue streams are threatened have a limited lifespan.

Leadership is required to understand the challenge, set strategy and objectives, build effective cultures and reorient organisations to be more resilient and relevant.

WHAT ARE THE CORE CONCEPTS?

Organisations are formed to efficiently achieve outcomes and a purpose.

Established business organisations are about leveraging existing business models as efficiently as possible in order to achieve ongoing profits. They are about stability and perpetuating the status quo, and most have formed out of relatively stable business environments.

However, the world is more complex and complicated than ever before, and, the pace of change has accelerated.

Established, stable business models are being disrupted. The very existence of many organisations is under threat as new business models are developed that better serve customers and are more relevant to customer needs.

Digital disruption is driving much of the change. It is enabling new business models, transforming markets and changing the way people and organisations communicate and interact. Digital is enabling new ways of solving customer problems and offering novel opportunities for value creation.

People are changing. Digital Natives are the new cohort of workers and customers who have grown up on technology, from birth. They think differently from previous generations, are motivated differently and expect a default digital experience. Organisations must reorient to meet these needs in order to remain relevant,.

We need new ways of thinking and acting to remain relevant, competitive and resilient in a dynamically disruptive environment.
