Strategy in the Digital Revolution

A Masterclass for Cohorts

Digital had already established itself as a primary driver of winners and losers across industries, and the COVID-19 crisis has only accelerated the urgency with which organizations need to evolve their strategies and business models. As Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, has declared: “We’ve seen two years’ worth of digital transformation in two months.”

In a context of massive disruption and exponential change, incremental approaches are not fit for purpose. New foundations have emerged that will underpin competition for the next generation. Post-crisis, the winners will be led by leaders who have reinvented their strategies and thinking to adapt to these new foundations and developed new strategic capabilities in their organizations.

“We can no longer think about strategy without innovation and we can no longer think about innovation without digital. In leading organizations, these are becoming one and the same.”

Ryan McManus, founder and CEO of Techtonic

Strategy needs to move at the speed of digital for an organization to survive and thrive. The firms that will be successful will adopt a new strategy playbook that adapts to ongoing complexity and speed, looking well beyond the short-term planning horizon. They will understand technology beyond the purely executional and reframe it as a primary driver of both business strategy and innovation.

Now is the time for leaders and organizations to recalibrate portfolios, revisit strategy and redeploy their financial and talent resources to survive and thrive.
