Eating Disruption for Lunch: Digesting Decentralization

The buzz: Decentralizing. In the industrial age, businesses like railroads and electric power companies grew large because centralizing allowed them to deliver improved services to their markets. Now we’re seeing a paradigm shift fueled by technology-enabled de-centralization. Innovations like 3D printing, the Internet of Things, smart watches, mobile technology and Tesla’s standalone battery to power a home or office – all allow us to de-couple from businesses. These exciting – or scary – disruptions have vast implications for the future of your business. Are you ready? The experts speak. Frank Diana, TCS: “The challenge is to rehearse the future and prepare for a range of possibilities” (Fast Future Research). Gray Scott, Futurist: “Nothing comes unannounced, but many can miss the announcement” (Terence McKenna). Timo Elliott, SAP: “Status Quo is, you know, Latin for 'the mess we’re in'” (Ronald Reagan).
