There’s no more such thing as knowing your competitor and have a competitive advantage – as digital disruption comes from anywhere with completely new business models.
The new advantage is about adaption. The question is, what can you do today to ensure your company stays ahead of the competition.
In this fast changing world it’s not the strongest who survives, it’s about quick adaptability. That’s true for organizations as well as for individuals.
There are many facets you have to deal with, to be able to adapt quickly and seamlessly to new realities. Just think about technologies, system architecture, financing, workspaces, industry 4.0, organizational structures, compensation models, working models. Now you can struggle to decide where to start, but there’s one thing that’s definitely needed and that is a diverse & digital workforce with engaged, fired-up, productive and highly creative employees that know how to deal with the fear to fail and celebrate success.
No matter if you think about it as individual or as organization, think how you can play to that need – and keep in mind it’s not about what you know, it’s about what you do.
