Back in 1963, President John F. Kennedy was quoted as saying... "Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future." Such a profound quote. We can't help but wonder what JFK would have thought about today's speed of change.
Change is inevitable. You can't ignore it. There’s a huge shift taking place right now and it’s disrupting entire industries, businesses and jobs around the world - and it’s called Digital Transformation. The old way of doing things is changing and companies now need to adapt to digital innovations, new emerging technologies, changing cultures, and new business models and processes in order to compete and survive. Just look at Uber, Airbnb, Netflix, Amazon, and GE - they digitally transformed their industries... and the rest is history.
Small and Midsize Business (SMB) Leader Feedback
It’s important to be aware of this massive transformational change and what it means for you and your business going forward. Over the last several months we’ve had some great conversations with small and midsize business leaders about Digital Transformation and there's still a lot of confusion around it. Many of them are struggling to keep up with today’s fast-changing technology, some are struggling to implement all the changes that are required and others don't have a clear understanding of how Digital Transformation can give them a competitive advantage over larger companies and their competitors.
We found that many midsize companies have already launched Digital Transformation projects and they need help accelerating them. Small businesses have procrastinated a little bit more than they should have in today's fast-changing world. SMB leaders can't afford to wait and see what happens... just ask the taxi companies around the world about what happens if you wait a little too long (you're Uberized).
As Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce says... "Speed is the new currency of business."
