Innovation is transforming every business!

The phenomenon of digital disruption is not a new one! Yet the opportunities and dangers it presents change after some time and those who make the first move, background remembers them as pioneers!

Ever wondered how ipod device replaced CDs, how Amazon online defeated Barns and Grand, why didn’t Marriot think of AirBnb, why taxi drivers couldn’t come up with a brilliant idea that Uber did and how Netflix became the number one choice of Blockbuster’s long-time customers!

Businesses that are bold enough to innovate, serve as the poison pill for those that are still following the rules of the last century!

Coming from the rise of digital, to beginning of websites period, to social media and now mobile, technology, every couple of years, digital appears to be disrupting every aspect of our lives and that too at an unprecedented pace.

Rather than embracing and expanding the new digital wave, Kodak, Polaroid and many others spent their time and energies on defending the status quo. By the time, they realised digital photography is here to stay, it had recently been too late!

Rethinking value creation

One thing gowns common of most these innovators (Netflix, Uber, AirBnB and many others) is their ability to flag point a gap in existing products and services and filling it by rethinking a solution that creates greater value for the users! Most of all the core of their investment is focused on the customer and supplier value proposition not product or services they serve!

Perform you really think Marriot knows what a hotel industry is all about? Without having to own property, hire and coach housekeeping staff or be on call 24/7, AirBnB was able to operate a simpler and more successful business design that was profitable to all or any parties (i. electronic. customers and suppliers) included!
