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.

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.
