In an increasingly disruptive environment, swayed by new technology and changing political movements, many businesses are facing a growing number of challenges and an awful lot of uncertainty.
It is easy for business owners to become stuck in their old business models – models which may have brought them success in the past, but are not equipped to sustain growth and success in this emerging new landscape. Rapid technological developments mean more and more functions are becoming automated, not just blue collar work, but also roles that actually require human effort and creativity are progressively being affected.
And there is no getting around it. Planning for success in the future will look radically different to the plans we have in place now; the key is to embrace this change and become adaptable within your industry, which is what this season of the Business Owners Podcast seeks to address.
In our first episode I am joined by a panel of Australia’s leading experts on disruption and innovation, Steve Glaveski and Simon Quirk. Steve is the co-founder of Collective Campus which is an organisation that exists to help mature businesses with innovation. Simon is the founder of a number of start-up businesses, including Strategy Fusion and VidVersity, and is also a strategy consultant.
In this episode of the podcast, we discuss what’s happening, and how to leverage the change for competitive advantage.
