Trusted mindsets and existing business models are collapsing, corporations are struggling to react to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by risking too little transformation too slowly – and your industry is up next!

Disruption Denial

We live in a world of constant change and disruption caused mainly by new technology. Yet, in business, there is widespread apathy, paralysis and confusion in many established companies in face of the obvious scope, scale, reach and pace of disruptive change. Why? Because Denial is the natural default response, given how executives’ brains function and how they are trained.
This important book examines why companies seem paralysed in the headlights of onrushing digital and other disruption. In analysing and understanding this tendency towards denial in companies, the author is then able to guide executives to begin seeing a new perspective to coping with the transformation challenge that faces them. Full of insightful case studies and lessons gained from the author’s work with leading companies, this is a hugely timely book when virtually all companies and executives must deal with the threat of disruptive change.

Upgraded

The realm of the “personal” is now increasingly touched by technology – especially the Internet. For example, sleep is now something we do in between checking our smartphones. Our relationship to food and eating has changed too. Home delivery, restaurant search, table bookings – these have all been elevated to a high level skill-set which is part-entertainment, part-electronic processing. And travel is now a finger-clicking exercise with precision timing.
This readjustment of our daily routine has had one significant effect: it has taught individuals a range of skills that would normally be in the domain of businesses.  Ordinary people now behave as businesses do by using buying strategies to get costs down. We now have expectations of quality and delivery. In fact, we have become so business-like as individuals that marketers need to get rid of the processes of “Business-to-Consumer” communication, and begin to adopt the rules of “Business-to-Business” when talking to consumers. Such change of our lives is an explosion of the new – new thinking, new business, new relationships, new selling, new buying, new leisure, new humans.
