We live in an era of risk and instability. Globalization, new technologies, and greater transparency have combined to upend the business environment and give many business leaders a deep sense of unease.
Market leadership is proving to be increasingly illusive. Advances in technology, the threat of new entrants and a digitally connected business environment is making it increasingly harder for companies to adapt to in a real-time fashion.
To adapt, a company must be tuned to signals of change from the external environment, decode them, and quickly act to refine or reinvent its business model and even reshape the information landscape of its industry.
If your competitive reality is uncertain and rapidly changing, you need a dynamic and sustainable way to stay ahead. The key to growth – even survival – is to unlock a new competitive advantage.
