Condensed knowledge

  • Winning in the post-Covid world will require re-imagining not just how you work, but also what you do to create value in the digital era. 
  • Now is the time for executive teams to step up, disrupt themselves, and become leaders in the digital age.
  • We’ve researched more than a dozen companies who have been hard at work to transform in this way since well before the pandemic struck.
    • Philips shed its foundational business (lighting) and evolved from manufacturing and distributing products at scale, to bringing together hardware, software, data, clinical expertise and AI-enabled insights to support the delivery of better quality and lower cost health care.
    • Microsoft achieved historic levels of cloud revenue growth from solutions such as supporting universities to move their entire “business” online.
  • Leaders who want to secure their organization’s future must:
    • Reimagine your place in the world, instead of focusing on digitizing what you already do. 
    • Create value through ecosystems, rather than trying to do it all alone.
    • Re-imagine your organization to enable a new model of value creation, rather than asking people to work in new ways within the confines of the old organizational model.
