The ability to achieve business goals by incorporating disruptive technologies as driving forces is critical to an organization's survival. This book prepares executives for the challenge of creating a culture of exploration and shaping strategic transformation in times of profound disruption. How can leaders bridge the gap between business competence and the creation of new wealth?
This is a book about leadership, awareness, intelligent informed opinion, and rapid action in a time of change. The ability to achieve business goals by incorporating disruptive technologies and their driving forces, is critical to an organization's survival. Corporate boards, CEO's, COO's and all operational leadership, must align in support of any action directed at making the most out of disruptive technologies.
Understanding that disruption moves society from one level of existence to the next, the author demonstrates that to be future proof, leaders must demonstrate their ability to adapt to changing dynamics with creativity and complex thinking to ensure that they learn and innovate at the same time. Showing readers how tactical agility in future proofing enables employees at all levels to innovate, and take intelligent risks whilst pursuing a clear strategy, the book showcases how strategic agility in future proofing enables organizations as a whole to identify new trends and changes in the business environment, and empowers individuals to adapt dynamically to new realities.
Recognizing that companies which respond to disruptions in the early stages of amplification can convert potentially existential threats into transformative opportunities, this book shows us how good leadership, intelligent informed opinion, and rapid action in a time of change can help organizations not only to predict the future, but create it.
Future proofing is not about predicting the future, it is about creating it. It is about realizing the immensity of being human, in an age of rapid technological advancements, and setting new goals from this understanding, leading to a new destination. New goals open up new timelines, and new timelines lead to transformative change in organizations.
