The innovation shift is the transition to the new digital paradigm.

The old rules of the industrial age no longer apply and new rules of success are being created. Discover the 5 key mega-trends that are causing disruptive innovation to accelerate and how the best companies are taking advantage of these trends to succeed.

The Innovation Shift

Disruptive innovators follow 5 steps to usurp the incumbent operators. Discover how Uber and others used the playbook to disrupt the global transportation markets.

The Disruptor Playbook

Disruptors are driven by their ideology to destroy the existing status quo and build a better reality. Find out how god, gold and glory drive disruptors to do whatever it takes to win.

Disruptors are driven by their ideology to destroy incumbents

Disruptors focus on growth not profitability; if you are growing exponentially then in a few short years (7 to be exact) you can go from nothing to being a global giant. Today, if you're not growing, you are dying.

Growth is the key

Traditional companies fail to implement innovations because their bureaucracies murder innovation; a bureaucracy is designed to destroy innovation! Most traditional firms can create innovations but they cannot integrate them into their business models because their bureaucracies prevent them from changing themselves.

The industrial paradigm of the bureaucracy also applies to education, this excellent video explains how schools kill creativity:

Traditional companies are too focused on their internal issues to pay attention to what is happening in their markets, especially on the periphery of their markets. Innovation-age companies use disruptor radars to identify threats and opportunities early and this gives them the time they need to respond effectively.

Traditional companies lack a disruptor radar

The failure to change fast enough is what ultimately kills the traditional company. Trapped in the naive belief that they have time, they transform themselves too slowly to keep up with the exponentially growing disruptors and this condemns them to fall into the death spiral.

Digital disruption drives traditional companies into the death spiral

Clayton Christensen's innovator's dilemma explain why managers systematically avoid investing in the innovations they need to remain relevant. The failure to innovate effectively causes the manager and company to fail because they are no longer providing relevant offerings to the customer. The dilemma is broken by using emotions that inspire the courage to innovate.

How to beat the innovator's dilemma

Managers and management were invented 100 years ago by Charles Taylor to organise factories. Today, most of the tasks that managers perform are being replaced by AI (Artificial Intelligence) and other forms of technology. To remain relevant in the innovation age, managers must become leadapreneurs or face lower income, job security and job satisfaction.
