Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change
A book... and starting point to activate business resilience in the COVID Economy
Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change details a practical approach for being disruption ready, the fundamentals of Strategy in Action (SiA), and examples of organisations leveraging disruption.
Disrupted is the distillation of the wisdom of Resilient Futures' twenty-five plus years of researching and applying SiA in the USA and Australia.
‘Written in 2015. Now more relevant than ever for the COVID Economy’
Referred to as ‘a guidebook for the COVID Economy’, it delivers on three essential ingredients critical for any leader looking to leverage the business and economic impact of COVID-19. These are:
- Stimulating a new mindset in sync with business in a COVID Economy
- A robust tool-set to apply strategy - in action, and
- The immediate pursuit of opportunity and mitigation of risk
In Disrupted we are challenged to confront exponential change and ask ourselves:
"What are our disruptors, and how will we leverage them?"
Perfect questions for leaders committed to moving forward in the COVID Economy.
Few people genuinely understand systemic disruption. So having a practical guide from Larry and David to advise on strategies for leveraging new possibilities is highly valuable.
I read about 150 books per year. But Disrupted: Strategy for Exponential Change is a book that I have sitting on my desk all the time – ready for constant referral.

This is a book that makes readers stop, think, and reflect on the capabilities of their own personal business model as well as their organization’s. In doing so, readers are guided through a process of repurposing those existing capabilities to enable a systemic and adaptable response to change rather than ignoring it or suppressing it.

Larry and David’s SiA concept emerges as a useful way of tackling the future, and a lot of very pragmatic and astute advice is provided along the way. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand, discover and co-create the future!
