Strategy and leadership for a disruptive world

Advances in technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology and biotechnology have the potential to disrupt the rules of the game for every industry.

Challengers with big dreams, new tools and a "can do" attitude are creating new sources of value, changing the face of competition and disrupting the foundations on which our industries and institutions are built.

To prepare your business for the changes ahead you need to adopt a fresh approach to strategy and leadership, and be ready to disrupt your business before someone else does it for you.

Let disrupt it help set you on the right track to the future.

Disruptive technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy

This article was first published on 25 May 2013.

You know that things are getting interesting when McKinsey devotes significant resource to disruptive technologies.  This paper on the 12 technologies that could drive truly massive economic transformations and disruptions in the coming years is a quality piece of work and a great resource for anyone interested in understanding what’s ahead.  It’s comprehensive, intelligent but not bogged down in technobabble.

If you’re leading a business you should at least read the executive summary.  That’s just the beginning though.  The real challenge from a managerial perspective is to draw out insights as to what it might mean for your business.  My experience is that there’s no silver bullet or short cut for that.  It’s hard work and it means going beyond the obvious.

Before you do that though, you need to build out your knowledge of what’s going on in the world around you and this paper is a great place to start.
