The Digital Disruption X 2016

Disruptive Innovation ● Design Thinking ● Process Redesign ● Agility ● Innovation Hubs ● Corporate Venturing ● Data ● Technology

In his first statement after being elected Liberal leader, Australia’s next Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull urged Australians to embrace disruption.*

Turnbull said: “The Australia of the future has to be a nation that is agile, that is innovative, that is creative. We can’t be defensive, we can’t future-proof ourselves."

“We have to recognise that the disruption that we see driven by technology, the volatility in change is our friend if we are agile and smart enough to take advantage of it.”

Digital Disruption X in 2015 marked a shift in the collective consciousness of businesses. No longer was disruption a mythical buzz word concocted to stir up fear, but a general state of business reality in world governed by technology.
