A fascinating testament to the power of human inventiveness and a clear indication that disruption is here to stay. The lesson for larger companies wanting to thrive in this new 'all comers' environment is to be every bit as creative, nimble and close to consumers as your smaller - often more entrepreneurial - competitors. For many large companies, that will mean finding the courage to disrupt themselves.

As a CEO, three things should keep you awake at night. Do I have the right people in my team? Is my business cost competitive? And most importantly, are we still relevant for the consumer? Disruption is about finding new ways to stay relevant and every human enterprise aspires to it. However, I have learned one thing about disruption: you cannot plan for it - but you need to organize for it. Disrupt! is a great way to get organized. You will access in this book ideas and concepts that you may be able to apply directly or by association to your own enterprise. Disruption may be everywhere but it is actually quite hard to locate. I believe you can find it here.
