In the next 5 years, global machine-to-machine connections will grow by 400% from 5 billion to over 20 billion. In the past 6 years, Uber has grown from a mere app to a 50 billion-dollar business. And the noxious methane gas that used to escape the Arctic Ocean in meter-wide plumes is now bubbling out of the water in kilometer-wide columns.

This is exponential change ... and its happening now.

About the Book

We are in an an environment where the exponential “elbows” of multiple systems are converging and disrupting lives and organizations at an accelerated rate. Disruptive change is turning business models upside-down, destroying legacy value, and opening up the possibility for revolutionary futures to emerge across all industries.

This is new territory. And if ever there was a time we needed to “get exponential”, it is now. In this environment organizations have two choices: leverage disruptive, exponential change to generate new value or fall afoul of its consequences.

Disrupted is a guidebook to the current 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.
