Here’s a clip from a keynote in which I talk to the reality of the change that every organization faces today:
It’s all right there in the video clip – directly from my keynote:
The impact of disruption is that everything you do forever changes – the products you develop, the services you deliver, the methodologies you use, the materials at the heart of it, the skills that are required, the speed with which you operate. Everything changes in terms of how you deal with the competition you face, the speed at which you’re impacted, the revenue you generate, the age group of those you are up against as potential competitors, and the collaboration you require,
Are you going to align to the future or are you going to fight to the future?
The future involves change, the future involves disruptive ideas, the future involves new ways of working and new ways of doing things. The future demands that you collaborate in new and different ways. The future demands that you form the ability to form fast teams, the future demands that you don’t fight the future, you align to the future – because that’s where you discover the nexus of opportunity!
When it comes to the future, some people see the future, and see a threat.
Innovators see the same future and see an opportunity!
And what I implore you to think about as you focus on this journey of transformation is this: what do you do to change your future before the future changes you?
