The day after Tomorrow
Henry Kissinger described a recipe for strategic disaster in his book 'World Order': "You cannot remain relevant by simply projecting the familiar forward." Yet, that is what companies do almost every day. They look at tomorrow by what they know today, they extrapolate their comfort zone into the future, and hope for the best.
We spend most of our lives thinking about ‘Today’. We'd like to spend more time on ‘Tomorrow’. And then there is the ‘Day After Tomorrow’, the place where new ideas, business models, radically new technologies or concepts could change our business canvas forever. The Day After Tomorrow used to be far, far away. Until now. Technology has accelerated the pace of change in society. Digital has gone from being ‘nice’ to being ‘nasty’ where all of a sudden we talk about ‘disruption’ and ‘radical change’. Business models change overnight, and the Day After Tomorrow comes faster than ever before.
In this talk, Peter will tell us how companies can prepare for the Day After Tomorrow. How they can re-organize into patterns of innovation that allow them to be faster, more agile and more responsive and how can they follow the pace of change outside their walls, and refocus on being relevant to their customers.
