The forces of disruption could be more powerful in these fast-paced times, and no industry is immune. Leaders across industries are aware that established models are increasingly threatened by technology-driven change.

Leaders of established companies that want to be disruptive are asking their management teams and workforces to rethink their products and processes and look outside traditional corporate walls for innovative approaches. Companies should rethink their business model while they’re back up to speed. The moment is not to be missed: Those that step up their game will be better off and much more prepared to face the challenges and opportunities of the next normal than those that don’t.

To create truly sustainable growth, companies should embrace disruption rather than resist it.
