In one of our blogposts, we wrote about how Digital-first players aim for market share, not short-term profits. One of the major advantages of these players, which are usually startups, is the speed at which they can innovate. How do they get so fast? And is there anything you can learn from that and apply to your business today? Read More
How can your organization create meaningful change in the world if it doesn’t know what the world is going to look like? This is why we always start our Digital Transformation workshops or presentations by inspiring and opening the eyes of our public or workgroup. We show them examples of players that are disrupting their sector today and others that may do so in the future. Read More
Whether you call it disruptive or ‘plain and simple’ innovative, Ghent-based law firm deJuristen definitely knows how to keep things interesting. They not only approach the ‘old’ legal business in new, fascinating ways, but also keep an eye out for different opportunities that may seem a bit odd for a law firm at first. When they introduced a new marketplace for consumers and local farmers to connect with each other (Mijnboer.be), we just had to reach out for a chat with Karel-Jan Vercruysse, partner at deJuristen to talk about their company, disruption and the digital transformation of the legal profession.
Virtual Reality is described as one of the “Next big things” by the media, but all the abusers of “the next big thing” have made us numb for such talk. Our friends, family and influencers aren’t really talking about VR, so the debates on what it can potentially change about our lives haven’t really come through yet. Read More
You have undoubtedly heard countless references to Generation Z, Millennials, Baby boomers, etc. and how these different generations approach digital, but what does this really mean for your business? How do you keep attracting all of these people to your offering now that some people shop online more and visit less stores, while others don’t use modern technologies. Read More
On the 19th of September 2014, Alibaba went public and claimed the biggest IPO in history by raising $25 billion. Its founder, Jack Ma, is considered a rock star in Asia, but up until the IPO he was relatively unknown to the rest of the world. Even nowadays, people still know very little about him, his company and his philosophy. Read More
We’ve analyzed tons of disruptive players when we were writing our book on Digital Transformation. We discovered 7 similarities and call them “The 7 Metaphors of Digital Disruption“. We saw that all the disruptors score high on these drivers of transformation while traditional players have trouble with these metaphors. The new players are attacking you on every level.
How can you defend your business from these new players in your market? You should learn how they operate and try to implement (elements of) the business models of disruptive companies.
We’ve made a presentation that guides you through ten business models of hyper disruptors that we found inspiring. We hope you do too.
Please let us know your thoughts about it!
Big Data is one of the biggest buzzwords of the past few years. Here’s a great quote about it:
“Big Data is like teenage sex. Everyone says they’re doing it, hardly anyone really is, and nobody knows what they’re doing.”
Those of you who are familiar with our Digital Transformation methodology know that we like things a little more pragmatic, so here is how you should start using data as a backbone of your business. Read More
For decades companies have closely watched their direct competition to anticipate the development of their new products. Imagine your biggest competitor coming up with something revolutionary that you haven’t even researched yet, a nightmare!
Times have changed though. If we look at the past 10 years, almost every disruptive idea in every sector came from outside the industry, usually from the technology sector. The most iconic example of this is the moment when Steve Jobs announced the first iPhone in front of an audience containing dozens of executives from Nokia, Motorola and BlackBerry. They couldn’t believe their eyes. Read More
