Ok, so you’re probably familiar with digital disruption — what it is, and how it affects business (in short, those that don’t innovate, fail). However, what you may not be as familiar with is the way in which digital disruption can actually benefit your business. While many of us look at digital disruption as a threat, it can actually provide opportunities to cut down costs, improve efficiencies, streamline processes, and ultimately thrive in the digital age.
Why do so many businesses fail?
Just like the printing press put scribes out of business, modern technology is going to change the way we do business. Many businesses fear the risks associated with changing the way that they operate. However, in a fast-paced market, change is often the only way to keep up. We are entering an era of non-hierarchal organisation. Traditional business models are transforming and being replaced with models that often involve crowdsourcing, less brick and mortar, and more flexible and dynamic frameworks.
Don’t fear the change monster
While rising to the challenge of being an innovator in this day and age is daunting, it’s not impossible.
