Thriving on Disruption: Recognize and Capitalize

Tuesday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 18ABCD
531 E 4th St

Disruption: as a buzzword it gives “innovation” and “synergy” a run for the money. Yet disruption remains a rich concept: the dividing line between “before” and “after.” It strikes at the heart (and foundations) of our world, seemingly out of nowhere. What if, instead, we could see disruption gathering like clouds on the horizon and identify whether it was a tornado or a blizzard? What would we do differently? John Hagel reveals the patterns that are likely to hit multiple, but not all, markets. He outlines what makes specific markets vulnerable to a pattern so that we can better anticipate where disruption might occur and what responses can help companies turn threats into opportunities.
