“Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change is definitely a seminal piece. It makes the concept of exponential change so clear […] it demystifies disruption and provides a framework that not only allows us to embrace disruptive change, but to profit from it.”

Disrupted is a guidebook to the exponential era and a toolbox for proactively leveraging this change. By exploring well-known examples of disruption-opportunists like Apple and Tesla Motors, Disrupted helps readers to understand the kind of “strategic thinking” that allow teams and leaders to confidently pursue opportunities with a shared strategic language, and a methodology designed for timely and agile execution at all levels of their organization.
In Disrupted we are challenged to confront exponential change and ask ourselves: “What are our disruptors, and how will we leverage them?”
“The important thing is to know what being discombobulated is all about, and how we should respond. Larry Quick and David Platt’s latest book, Disrupted, does just that in layman’s terms. It puts things in an historical, futuristic and contextual setting. A must-read, to understand the world of today and tomorrow; and look forward to the future rather than fearing it.”

“Quick and Platt have created a rallying cry for doing something different and disruptive […] They lay out a process for thinking about and acting on disruptive ideas and opportunities. This book is thinking about things that most of us are not, and therein lies our opportunity..”

“[Disrupted] has really got me thinking and enthused with disruption, Strategy in Action and how this methodology will help our organisation […] to be that elusive nimble organisation we are striving to be… I feel like I have a new lease on leadership and some think time to read Disrupted certainly helped.”
