Disruption is the New Normal
The ripples of powerful digital technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning have grown into waves that carry dramatic changes to virtually every sector, industry and function. From healthcare to the law, digital technology is disrupting old models and challenging the way we do business.
To thrive in a business environment of constant disruption, successful companies move quickly to take advantage of the massive transformations happening. They know that they must reinvent their entire business model or face being swept away in the years to come. Kodak, Nokia and Yahoo! are prominent examples of once industry titans that have been marginalised. Airbnb, Uber, Amazon and Apple on the other hand have disrupted and changed the rules of the game.
Digital disruption also carries unprecedented opportunities. When done right, companies who embrace digital transformation are able to better align with customer demands and be agile in the fast-changing digital age. It can also be the key to survival for large organisations as they compete with nimble rivals.
Leadership Development in the Digital Age
As organisations quickly recognise the need to reinvent themselves at a faster rate, they are increasingly seeking leaders who demonstrate agility and an innovative spirit.
This type of leader not only recognises potential in disruption, but has the confidence, tools and mind-set to boldly lead their organisations into unchartered territory and reshape whole businesses and industries.
The ground-breaking new Executive MBA from the University of Zurich will help you initiate and lead digital change, reinvent your company’s business model and transform into the innovative and agile leader needed for this volatile and rapidly changing business environment.
