In the past decade, we’ve seen remarkable innovations and extraordinary technological advancements change the way we live, play, and conduct business. The most notable innovations are the direct result of disruptors: leaders who changed the game. They learned to innovate more quickly, cheaply, and with less risk.
But this is no easy feat, especially in today’s accelerated environment.
For many, disruption causes anxiety, fear, and leads to disruption fatigue.
Ignoring the problem, or worse, feeding the fear, are not real solutions. Leadership in the time of disruption calls for a two-prong approach: improving current product performance and developing new disruptive technology.
In many cases, starting, re-tooling, and scaling a business is easier than ever before. But achieving and maintaining success is another matter. While rapid innovation and new technologies allow for faster speed to market, there are considerable risks and impacts.
In “Research: Organizations That Move Fast Really Do Break Things,” (Harvard Business Review, February 12, 2020), researchers Dana Kanze, Mark A. Conley, and E. Tory Higgins examine how a “move fast and break things” attitude exposes fast-growing organizations to significant risks.
Success is achieved when leaders, executives, and managers lead with careful consideration and mindful intention.
