What we see happening.
Our world is changing. Faster and more radical than ever before. The digital transformation is the great disruption of our time. It descales society, spawns business models and propels progress forward. Smart is bigger than big, ideas are more powerful than power. Familiar names are outpaced by new players, who are in turn challenged by even brighter business ideas.
This is only at the beginning. Blockchain, IoT, Big data, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence herald the next phase on the digital frontier. The US, China, the EU, the big tech companies, together they invest more money in technology than humanity has ever witnessed. The rules of the game are changing faster and more drastically by the day.
Entire business processes are being redesigned. Robots are the new supermarket managers. Houses are becoming smarter than the people that live in them. The digital transformation touches everything. How we live and learn or work. How we grow up and maybe never die. What we expect from society and ... from each other.
These changes might feel overwhelming, even intimidating. But they also open up new opportunities for everyone. Already today. You don't have to be a billion-dollar company to lead the way. The big ones are challenged daily by little ones who are smarter and move faster. We all have the opportunity to explore new ideas, learn from them and get ahead of the game.
The future has long since begun. Digital thinking and doing lets every organization truly connect with customers through great experiences. And not just that. The digital transformation enables business to become more profitable, to build a decisive lead and to shake up the entire market.
Our world is changing. And it will be amazing.
