Business is changing. Entire industries are being disrupted. Seemingly overnight. Many organisations are unprepared for the forces that are currently impacting their industry, or are about to hit them.
It’s a bit like water pressing up on the edge of a dam. Year upon year of pressure. Then, one day, a small chink appears, and whoosh, the whole thing comes crashing down.
I’ve witnessed these effects in advertising & media (from both sides), and we’ve all seen them hit the post, video stores, music, retail and TV industries … and we’ve not seen anything yet.
What will robotics, autonomous vehicles, bots, AI, AR & VR, machine learning, big data and batteries do to the mining, power, real estate, agriculture, finance, insurance, construction industries and government … and more?
As much as there are major threats, there are also enormous opportunities for those organisations that align themselves correctly.
This blog (my ‘damburst of opinion’) contains some thoughts about the world of digital disruption, transformation, strategy and leadership.
As I like to say, “better you burst the dam than have the dam burst on you…”
