It is true that change is not going to stop nor slow down. Huge technology drivers opening up new markets and business models. This in turn is creating more and more new data that can help understand, accelerate, and advance your business.
Business flux has not been so fluid – for good and bad – since the Industrial Revolution or the Great Depression. This is especially true in science, engineering, and information technology. The gamut we focus on in this change is in disruptions to the information lifecycle.
There are really only a few management choices to make:
- Lead and Bleed with risky investments in new concepts in hopes of ending out ahead
- Slow down and hope the hype passes, things remain the course
- Adapt in measured way balancing your existing investment and newer concepts.
