Problem or Opportunity
“Why do you think it takes a Tesla to disrupt the conventional passenger vehicle industry? Why do you think it takes a Google or a Facebook to disrupt the conventional media? Why do you think it takes an Amazon to disrupt the conventional retail giants?” —-Why does disruption always has to have an inorganic trigger?
Good or bad is debatable but it accompanies with the churn of huge PE money, high number of job losses, obsletion of skill sets and what not. Now when this happens firms mostly focus on altering/correcting the “Demand side” or the “Operational side” of things. Here’s why companies spend big money hiring Management Consultants to understand what went wrong and how to fix it; overlooking the “Supply facet” of the story. All that they get in return is a set of industrial best practices and upcoming trends to replicate the disruption. By the time they adopt, the market moves ahead further and this vicious cycle continues. Here’s where we fit in!
