Building a new media business from the inside out

Digital is disrupting entire value chains and business models across many industries. For media and entertainment companies, it provides exciting new growth opportunities. To grasp them, you need a clear and flexible vision that can easily adapt to changing market conditions, and a bold transformation approach.

Digital transformation is about ensuring a new, long-term relevance and business durability in the context of a fast-changing media industry. Corporate strategies used to be set in stone for decades. No longer. You can’t afford to be prescriptive about strategy setting in the current dynamic world. Your journey, and your ability to change direction with speed and agility, is just as important as your destination.

The World

New Entrants

New entrants are leveraging new technologies to launch disruptive new business models—so you need to be more flexible and adapt faster.


Innovation is no longer in-sourced—you need to incorporate innovation from new technologies and ecosystem with agility.
