Dear friends,

We had an exciting day in the London Business School today. Peter Hinssen talked about how digitalisation is changing industries. And the question he asked was how the organisations we work in are preparing themselves. At the end of the day I had a mixed feeling:

  • How will we keep up with the evolutions and question our own business models?
  • Have we been wasting time?

Innovations are different now. The Bell-curve with early adapters and laggards does not exist any more. Today there is a shark-shaped progress. You can find more about that  in this Accenture report.

Anyway we are in trouble if we do not monitor for disruptive changes and embrace this kind of change ourselves. And for that companies could consider creating a disruption committee. A good idea.

    I like the idea of a “disruption committee”, rather than a “change steering group”. That name alone seems to suggest failure already. An interesting model I worked with is that of the 3 zones of change ( The most “disruptive” model I know so far. I mean with that: a model that allows change to proceed as change, and not as the project flowchart suggests her to go 😉
    Have a nice evening !

    I don’t think we’ve been wasting our time (i hope so it’s quiet frustrating
