Strategy and change

strategic questions.pngSince the first of the year I’ve been giving a presentation on embracing technical trends for organizations – what strategists need to think about. At the end of the material, I include the take away points:

  • Many of the factors that enable change are predictable - plan to take advantage of predictable change

  • Scarcity affects value – Every organization can determine how what is abundant can maximize the value of what is scarce
  • The rate of change and transformation is increasing. We need to prepare our organizations to assimilate and take advantage of change - there is no end state, we play through anticipated changes
  • The increasing digitization of society, commerce, personal and professional lives is not a replacement for today’s processes and systems, but adds capabilities – the future is additive

  • Social influence is beyond the control of any individual ecosystem but will impact all organizations - make it work for you

What other areas do strategists need to comprehend or embrace?

Of all the aspects underlying NSIT .... "Scarcity affects value – Every organization can determine how what is abundant can maximize the value of what is scarce" ... is not quite sinking in for me. Can you provide more specific examples and use cases? Thank you.

I realize I was a bit terse on the post, so I'll provide another one that fleshes the concepts out a bit.
