The Disruption Readiness Test

"No industry or sector will be untouched by disruption (technological or other). In fact, all operating and business models are already under attack, and too few organizations are robustly prepared to respond.

If you don’t agree…then you’re not asking the right questions".

-Larry Quick, Author, Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change

In their book Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change, Larry Quick and David Platt presented the challenge of disruption and outlined a strategic framework – Strategy in Action - that allows organizations to develop and deploy strategy focused on leveraging disruption.

Here, in The Disruption Readiness Test (DRT), they challenge leaders to test their organization’s disruption readiness and identify the actions required to effectively leverage disruption. The DRT gets readers quickly up to speed with disruption, and what it means to strategically and actively leverage disruption. It also lays out the key insights and research that led to the development of the DRT. And, critically, it outlines the preparations that readers need to take to benefit from—rather than be blind-sided by—the disruptors that will transform their organization, industry, and sector.

Disruption is not a choice. It has been happening since before the wheel was invented. What makes disruption different today is that the speed and amount of change has no historical precedent.

Energy, finance, retail, automotive, media, transport, education, health, politics, government, construction, legal, telecommunications, space travel, recruiting, manufacturing, food…the list of industries already experiencing the exponential impacts of disruption goes on.

Preparing for and leveraging disruption—the technological and non-technological elements driving unprecedented, rapid change in all industries—is the test of our times.

The question for us all is, “Are we, our leaders and our organizations, disruption ready?”

The Disruption Readiness Test: The Book is now available to purchase from Resilient Futures.
