The Age of Disruption Today’s disruptive, tumultuous, and ever-changing global business environment shows no signs of slowing. Authors Shane Cragun and Kate Sweetman believe it is time for a wake-up call to those hoping to thrive in the 21st century. Reinvention is the first business book to propose a simple algorithm, common principles, and set of tools that apply to both individuals and organizations facing disruptive and radical change. The ability to pivot quickly, profoundly, and effectively might be the most important core competency individuals and organizations must attain in order to prosper in the new economy. And it isn’t enough to be able to change when they have to; leaders must change before they have to, in proactive ways that allow their organizations to leverage incoming global shockwaves to accelerate performance. Cragun and Sweetman use contemporary examples to drive important points home. Key strategies are couched in metaphors to create visual maps that will help the reader implement their new learnings at the moment of need. The stories and case studies are compelling, eclectic, and global, and take the reader beyond just the world of business. Reinvention includes chapter insights written by six global experts from six different geographical business regions around the globe.

In a world characterized by globalization and rapidly evolving technology, change is a given. The primary workforce is evolving and is now dominated by millennials who seek purpose and empathy - a phenomenon the top management grapples with. Most employers' understanding of this change is restricted, leading to most of the techniques used to address issues being in step with advances in process but overlooking the human element. Can an empathetic approach to our relationships at the workplace help us achieve more? Does the onus of creating and sustaining a supportive culture lie only with the top management? There is an urgent need to move away from traditional command-centred style of management towards an organizational culture that is inclusive, fosters trust and focuses on employee empowerment. From Command to Empathy addresses the tussle between the management and the employees, and investigates the reasons behind them through anecdotes, case studies, questionnaires and self-scoring exercises. Avik Chanda and Suman Ghose draw from real-life examples and their deep industry experience, and research on organizational behaviour and neuroscience, to arrive at practical tips on how to inculcate and use emotional maturity in workplace situations to help readers achieve both professional and personal goals.

The barriers to entry in your market just vanished. Unexpected competitors are swarming in. Are you ready? You always knew digital was going to change things, but you didn't realize how close to home it would hit. In every industry, digital competitors are taking advantage of new platforms, tools, and relationships to undercut competitors, get closer to customers, and disrupt the usual ways of doing business. The only way to compete is to evolve. James McQuivey of Forrester Research has been teaching people how to do this for over a decade. He's gone into the biggest companies, even in traditional industries like insurance and consumer packaged goods, and changed the way they think about innovation. Now he's sharing his approach with you. McQuivey will show you how Dr. Hugh Reinhoff of Ferrokin BioSciences disrupted the pharmaceutical industry, streamlining connections with doctors and regulators to bring molecules to market far faster--and then sold out for $100 million. How Charles Teague and his team of four people created Lose It!, a weight loss application that millions have adopted, achieving rapid success and undermining titans like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig in the process. Regardless of your background and industry, you can learn how to be a digital disruptor too. First, adopt the right mindset: Take risks, invest as cheaply as possible, and build on existing platforms to find the fastest path to solving a customer's problem. Second, seek the "adjacent possible"--the space just next to yours where new technology creates opportunity. That's how Benjamin Rubin and Paolo DePetrillo of Zeo created a $100 sleep monitor that does much of what you'd get from a $3,000 sleep lab visit. Finally, disrupt yourself. Use these tools to make parts of your business obsolete before your competitors do. That's what Tim FitzRandolph did at Disney, creating a game that shot to the top of the app store charts. With the tools in this book you can assess your readiness, learn the disruptive mindset, and innovate rapidly, starting right within your own business.
