Today we’re launching the closing piece of our research series on disruptive innovation: ‘Mastering Digital Disruption with DevOps‘. In the earlier works we sketched the design principles of the new competition. Two-sided market players are taking over control in every market and a new wave of platform innovation is to be expected: The blockchain. There are no easy fixes. Startups are faster, more engaged and more customer obsessed. The only way to tackle the incompetencies of incumbents is to change the way the organization works: Its culture, its management, its obsession with bureaucracy. How should incumbents respond to these kind of market changes? The answer we present in the closing (fourth) report is: 1 Innovate management 2 By doing DevOps 3 In order to become anti-fragile The long term objective is to create an organization that gains strength form disruption.
