Innovation Management

Innovation Management

Did we see Twitter or WhatsApp and the fundamental ways they change contact between people? Did we see the sale of GE Capital as the new economics of banking suddenly made GE the wrong shareholder? It’s a fact that disruptive forces are dramatically transforming our societies and industries. Value chains in almost every industry are shrinking, contorting, and re-emerging as something else. Opportunities and threats are often only fully acknowledged and acted upon after they have overwhelmed us. Hindsight shows that most disruptions come with ample warning signs and tell-tale activity. Looking forward, the good news is: Most disruptions can be taken advantage of or mitigated if we become better at interpreting the warning signs and early activity. Especially, if we master the conviction to really act on that improved understanding in an entrepreneurial way.
