There is more uncertainty than ever. We’re living in a time where companies and industries are disrupted almost on a daily basis. Change is a constant and companies need to be much more aware of non-traditional competitors who are lurking around every corner. The Digital Big Bang is enabling new business models and c-suite executives are starting to realize that no industry is immune to its impact. All of this impacts the speed and scale with which businesses need to innovate.
The current consensus among leading authorities on strategy is that classical strategy is inadequate to deal with dynamic markets and this is exactly what Strategos has always advocated. Companies tap into the same sources of intelligence and, as a result, competing organizations often converge on similar strategies and tactics that do not differentiate, engage or inspire. The current market environment, driven by globalization and digitization, only makes the inadequacy of the classical approach more obvious.
Growth strategy is about purpose driven innovation. It is a more creative, yet systemic approach to strategy development, that is based on a much broader range of insights from inside and outside the organization.
