Disrupt or be Disrupted NEW with Nick Holley

Many mouths are talking about the need to disrupt markets, or risk being disrupted. That’s fine to say, but what are the capabilities needed to be the disruptor? How do you develop them? Drawing on examples, we’ll lead a conversation on how to understand and start growing these value-creating capabilities.

Strategy depends on organisational capability; without the requisite people, culture, systems, processes and structure, strategy is a dream that can rapidly become a nightmare. This has always been true but in a period of ever increasing change and disruption there is a danger that embedded capabilities become an anchor dragging us down and destroying our ability to respond to rapidly changing markets and competition – witness Kodak, HMV or Blockbuster. Instead we need to focus on creating a capability that ensures we become the disruptors in our industry not the victims of disruption. In the session Nick will outline how to create this capability focusing on four key cornerstones of disruption: hyperawareness, collaboration, risk taking and agility, but he will not focus on small tech start ups that aren’t relevant to most Henley Partnership member companies but on big organisations in traditional industries such as ING, 3M and Zara that have embraced disruption.
