Today’s Reality – Disrupt or Be Disrupted.
The 2016 Evolve Technology & Leadership conference, found Steve Wozniak (The Woz) presenting on the main stage challenging the audience to find a CDO – Chief Disruption Officer. He said, “Give them space and a healthy budget to tinker and innovate. And maybe one or two of their ideas will help your business thrive and dictate the competitive landscape.” He went on to cite several well-known examples of companies that successfully pioneered an industry or drastically transformed an existing one.
Today, no matter the industry or market segment, disruption is the new reality. And smart business leaders know they have to create their own opportunities. Whether the disruption is internal – new tools and processes – or external – a new differentiated product or service, the catalyst for change is driven through digital transformation. Of course, transformation can often be challenging and often painful. How can you manage the business during your transition? Can you work through the culture shift? What will the process entail?
It’s time to find out.
