Adapt or Die Podcast
Exploring the Science of Business Transformation
The rules for creating and maintaining a successful business are being rapidly rewritten by innovative market disruptors and the non-stop consumer demand for more – faster, cheaper, and on their terms. In 1965, the average lifespan of an S&P 500 company was 33 years. In 1990, it was 20. At the current churn rate, it is forecast to shrink to 14 years by 2026 and nearly half of the S&P 500 will be replaced over the next 10 years. This is largely thanks to the pace of innovation, the number of new entrants, and an equal opportunity to harness technology to innovate at a global scale. Those that thrive are businesses that are able to harness data available to rapidly sense market opportunity and make faster, more intentional decisions and move their organizations to action, or risk joining the growing list of companies we only remember.
Adapt or Die is a podcast that explores the science of transformation and lessons to be learned by the trail blazers already on the path to develop an ability to continually adapt at the urgent pace of innovation.
