Today the disrupter’s name is “Survival” and it is being fueled by massive unemployed of smart people all over the globe. Technology has made it possible that your biggest threat may be an ocean away.

What are you doing about this threat? How much time are you devoting to engage your team to respond? The challenges are always the same: better, faster, cheaper. Or is this total truth? Serial entrepreneur, mentor, motivator, author and all-around great guy, Marcus Whitney offers another theory; “Different is better than better.” Let that perspective permeate a bit.

You must find a broad array of experts to join you in thought, discovery, analysis and testing of alternative solutions.

Acknowledge disruption is a continuous threat to survival, take time to think about how to respond, and gather expertise and resources to create new ideas and solutions to position yourself as the disrupter; the winner.
