Leading in the new: Harness the power of disruption

OWNING DISRUPTION

Disruptors are ushering in the future. From disruption comes the new.

Change can happen in the blink of an eye. But not always. The strength and nature of disruption is defined by the value it releases and it is often predictable. It can be anticipated, met, controlled, and even courted.

FOUR IMPERATIVES TO LEAD IN
THE NEW


What do you need to do today to lead in the new?

So, let’s imagine you’re managing disruption and uncovering new value—but your organization is still stuck in a loop of doing things how they have always been done. Take a look at the four steps that can help to reinvent your business culture and operations.

Transform The Core

Build competitive agility and more competitive cost structures to improve flexibility, increase profits and drive up investment capacity in the existing core business model.

Grow The Core Business

Use new investment capacity to support digital marketing and analytics (to gain new operational insights) and improve Web/mobile interactions (to activate new demand and expand into new markets).

Scale New Business

Build and scale an innovation architecture inside the business (for example, innovation hubs, Labs, partnerships) that is reflective of the different levels of maturity of those innovations.

Pivot Wisely

Strike a delicate balance. If businesses pivot too quickly from the core to the new, they will over-invest and stretch themselves too thin financially. If they pivot too slowly from the core to the new, they risk becoming obsolete.

ROTATE TO THE NEW



Adopt a disciplined approach to change

Rotating to the new is a conscious and deliberate journey, not a single event.

Help your business become an intelligent enterprise

Be asset-light, customer focused and crowd-friendly to succeed in the new.

IT’S TIME TO ACT

Organizations must continuously reinvent themselves to stay relevant and meet the demands of a fast-forward future. They need to know what not to fear, and be decisive in making momentous, strategic choices.


Intelligent enterprises master an organizational architecture that brings together new capabilities and existing operating models to create a step-change in agility, efficiency, productivity, and creativity.

Living Business

Constantly transforming to be customer-relevant.

Industry X.0

New levels of efficiency and agility - driven by smart, connected digital technologies, products and services.

Future Workforce

Creating adaptable and relevant workforces whose capabilities are augmented by new technologies.

Digital Decoupling

Become a technology company at the core to enable continuous innovation at scale.

Cyber-resilient Business

Build resilience from the inside out with a persistent approach that protects the entire value chain.
