Eight challenges leaders will need to address in the coming decade
The pace of change in modern business is dizzying, and leaders who aren’t prepared for the challenges on the horizon may find themselves leading their organisations into the history books.In 1958, the average lifespan of a company listed on the S&P 500 stock exchange in the U.S. was 61 years. Today that lifespan is just 18 years – and falling. At the current rate of attrition, three quarters of companies currently listed on the index will have changed in the next decade. The story’s the same in stock markets around the world.
In a world of unprecedented change, multiple messages, creative destruction and hyper-competition, what does it mean to be an innovative team?
It means unpredictability and uncertainty. It also means opportunity.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives; nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change” Charles Darwin.
The ability to adapt and change starts when we ask questions.
To succeed, businesses must continuously look ahead. To compete, they must innovate. But innovation is not an unattainable creative gift: it is systematic, methodical, and achievable by all. Skills have become the global currency of the 21st century, and innovation is a vital 21st century skill.
