Bruce Fritch, Strategic Snapshots: Refreshing Our Perspective

A Business Revolution is Brewing…But Who Will Lead?

I want to call your attention to the recent Forbes article by Michael S. Malone: A Revolution In The Works

This is an important article.  I’d put it at the “required reading today” level for all current and aspiring business leaders.  I certainly want my clients to absorb it.

The Crash of October 2008, signaling economic collapse that had begun prior to that and reverberates today, confined the strategic thinking of C-Suites to financial-survival thinking.  The CFO became the corporate strategist, and god bless ’em.

But the deeper call, largely unheeded, is for the resetting of business leadership thinking.  The fundamentals have changed.  Supply, now abundant, chases demand.  Technologies combine to enable impertinent young innovators – unencumbered by traditional Western corporate thinking – to surge forward here and overseas.

The same gutsy innovation can occur in corporate conference rooms and hallways in America.  To do this, leadership must reset.  Strategy must be revised.  Demand curves influenced. The opportunity exists.  American innovation in the new industrial revolution awaits leadership initiative.  And, leadership insight.

Let’s get going!

    Nice post, Bruce. Really enjoy the insights here.

  • Great post and reminder that there are incredible opportunities for deeper leadership! The ‘old’ models don’t work any more and they should not. What does ‘work’? We all know but do we have the courage, persistance and moral fiber to stand up?
