Peel-and-stick solar panels
This article was first published on 2 January 2013.
I’ve included this article because it’s illustrative of what’s happening with a range technologies for which the pace of development is exponential in nature. It also illustrates the way in which nano-technologies are enabling radical advances in a range of products and opening up new applications for products and new opportunities to disrupt the status quo.
For strategists, developments such as this raise two sets of questions:
- How does this technology impact my broader operating environment? Who are the potential winners and losers? Do the value pools shift and, if so, where from and where to?
- How might we use this technology to improve or even trasform our existing product/service offering?
