The Disruption Mindset: Why Some Organizations Transform While Others Fail
“Disrupt or Die” has been the rallying cry for decades, but what does it actually mean to be disruptive, to make it the center of your strategy? Many established companies set a goal to develop “disruptive” innovations, believing innovation will disrupt their market and drive growth. But that’s not how it works: disruption doesn’t create growth. Growth creates disruption. Transformations are never easy, and the unrelenting pace of technological change makes it doubly difficult. But there’s hope and a way forward — starting with reframing your strategy, leadership and culture so that disruptive growth is at the top of your agenda.
Audience members will learn how to:
- Define what disruption is — and isn’t — and how it can drive disruptive growth.
- Identify and prioritize the right disruptive growth moves — and align the organization around them.
- Understand how leaders must show up differently when pursuing a disruption strategy.
- Instill disruption into a status-quo culture.
