How to Disrupt Yourself

Your latest book is all about disruption from within an organization. What does it mean to ‘disrupt it yourself’?

‘Disrupt it Yourself’ is a play on the traditional DIY, or do it yourself. It underlines the importance of not waiting for others to solve your problems or disrupt your business. The fact is, a threat of disruption already exists within most established businesses — and added to that is the daily threat of disruption from new players and start-ups.

In my work, I emphasize the opportunity traditional organizations have to disrupt themselves, as well as their entire industries. I encourage them to harness the power of the people and the ingenuity that is already inside of their organization to create better, more relevant solutions for their end users.
