Ready by Design – Episode 1

What made firms successful in the past is now holding them back – so how do established enterprises respond to an ever-changing competitive marketplace?

Virtually every company is built to address the challenges that exist at the time of its founding. Everything that comes later must be adapted to, and as bolted-on technologies and altered organizational structures start to complicate the original business model it becomes harder to keep up with younger, more agile competitors.

In this, our first podcast in a new series examining the benefits of being ‘Ready by Design’, we explore the fact that when companies are prepared for anything and shaped to evolve, it positions them to create new business models, achieve faster times to market and increase business agility. These companies are positioned to create disruption or react to disruption.
