It’s Never Business as Usual
The polls reflected it; many people are hungry for change.
What the election means to globalism remains unclear, but we’d be naïve to think that change isn’t rapidly occurring anyway. In a world where there’s a fight for nationalism, while concurrently being more reliant and connected to other countries, who knows what will shake out.
But we do know one thing – companies will be forced to confront change.
The question is, will you adapt or resist?
Dion Weisler recently wrote the article 5 Lessons From The First-Time CEO Of A Tech Giant. In it, he described being a first-time CEO of the newly formed HP Inc. From the onset, the off-shoot business faced “challenges including mature and declining markets, increasing competition, global and political instability, and outdated perceptions…”
Weisler learned over the year that HP Inc.’s reinvention hinged on embracing change to create new possibilities. He noted, “We look for change opportunities through the lens of technological and socioeconomic trends that shape the world around us. The boundaries are disappearing between the physical and digital worlds, and between consumer and commercial.”
In a move that proved to be successful, Weisler structured the company to react quickly to change and enable decisions that would provide new opportunities.
As reported by the World Economic Forum, we’re already in the throes of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, “…the inexorable shift from simple digitization (the Third Industrial Revolution) to innovation based on combinations of technologies (the Fourth Industrial Revolution).” This shift is giving company officials cause to reexamine the way they do business – to understand the “changing environment, challenge the assumptions of their operating teams, and relentlessly and continuously innovate.”
Resist paralysis during times of change. Don’t be lured into a comfortable way of doing things or have your attention consumed by the latest crisis. Let worries go, breathe deeply, and take charge. Today’s decision makers must strategically react to perils and continue to plan for the promises that shape our future. Our employees and clients depend on us.
We are the Change Masters.
