Empire Strikes Back; a New Narrative from Long Ago and Far Away
I see a new-old emerging trend: Old-line companies becoming nimble and adopting new methods, operational styles, and technology. More important than anything is the courage and commitment to disrupt their old business even when it impacts the current bottom line. In this, they have their nemesis to thank, were inspired by their rivals to adopt their newfangled ways and even get an inside track on them. To do so, these behemoths are or have lowered short-term earnings, disrupted ops, acquired and built tech.
