Our businesses are still run the ‘old school’ way. Managers still ‘manage’, because we do not have trustworthy alternatives for ‘being in control’. You are ‘in’, or you are ‘not’. Our top talent is trained for yesterday – and runs into bore-out and burn-out.
Or into frustrating traffic jams.
Our processes are still about mid-term strategy and short-term planning. Our sales & marketing still segment and close deals. Our reports report yesterday’s KPIs. Our software models the old metaphors.
And runs quickly against the wall, when facing this new world.
