Why you need a Strategy that’s digitally-fit for the Exponential World

The world we live and work in is changing faster than ever before, and slower than it ever will in future. Everywhere, the barriers protecting previously secure business models are being destroyed by disruptive business models enabled by exponential technologies.

Digitally savvy and customer focused innovators are building business models capable of global scale, focusing on customer experience and using digital technologies to destroy legacy businesses at unthinkable pace. This is the new reality. And it means your historic assets may well be your future liabilities.

The five biggest companies in the world are now digital innovators. As recently as 2011, only one of the five biggest companies in the world was digital. The change has been that rapid.

The impact on legacy business is profound. Boston Consulting now predicts one in three public companies will fail in the next five years.
