Futureproof #1 – Corporate Innovation for the Digital Age

Host; Doyle Buehler, Guests: Paul Barter, Sharon McIntyre, Sean Moffitt

Our first episode of Futureproof discusses corporate innovation and the reinvention of business models, why they underperform historically and the rationale behind our newest piece of research.

Lifespans of firms are shortening. Technology is causing wideapan disruption. Customers are adjusting at breakneck speed. From one perspective, start-ups have it easy – they are nimble,  pivot quickly and their risks are limited.. Entrepreneurial guru Steve Blank defined a start-up as ‘a temporary organization set up to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.’ A corporation on the other hand is a permanent organization responsible for operating an established business – profitably! How do mature organizations balance the requirement to earn a profit with the need to continuously innovate new products, services and businesses in a rapidly changing market? Let’s have some of the study’s architects debate the topic and some of the hot button issues..Plus: In our just launching Corporate Innovation Playbook, Wikibrands (and partners) are identifying the whys, hows, whats and whos of effective business modelling and product & service innovation as seen through the eyes of successful large companies, startups. scallops,  academic and Innovation experts. .

Wikibrands is not waiting to let the industry shape itself out. Professional services has run by the same playbook for the last half century. It’s time for change. If we’re fine booking Airbnb’s vs. hotels, and driving Ubers not taxis, and leasing WeWork space, not real estate. then surely Wikibrands offers something your traditional consultancies, agencies and software firms can’t. Decentralization. Collaboration. Expert sourcing – let the future begin now.
