We are facing a world in which changes are taking place at an astonishing rate: economic, social and technological factors influence our personal as well as business environment.
Emerging technologies provide enormous amounts of data – e.g. 16 years of video is uploaded to YouTube every day – and will lead to further personalization of goods and experiences. Machines become more sophisticated and their presence in from of smart devices, unmanned systems and robots will reshape whole industries.
It means you must adapt to this unprecedented environment, or your business may struggle.
Taken with other global trends – new key players in the economic arena, such as the BRIC countries, accelerating globalization and new data processing technologies – it means competition is sharper than ever before. It also leads to the fact that the central goal for the entire business world will shift: from securing a stable market position to creating an organization that is able to constantly renew and adapt to new situations – fear of the innovator’s dilemma must be consigned to the past.
