Many observers have pointed to a “perfect storm” of change facing businesses, driven by a range of social, technical, economic, and political disruptors. Business leaders are grappling with simultaneous disruptions spanning all aspects of business, and the speed and magnitude of this change are confusing, if not paralyzing.
KPMG has launched Future Ready, a series that addresses questions about what organizations need to do to position themselves for success in today’s increasingly disruptive environment. Each installment will explore innovative solutions to emerging market challenges.
Welcome to Future Ready.
In Episode 1, Colleen Drummond and Steve Hill provide a look inside the innovation journey at KPMG Ignition, where we help clients embrace disruption.
