Innovation & Unintended Consequences
As waves of advancement in technology transform our world, our original intentions were to increase production and create wealth and leisure, but that is not how it played out. The web has spread wonderful efficiencies, and also side effects, some quite severe. The fabric of our society is being pulled in 100 directions as the ripple effects cause wrenching change in employment, dips in car and home purchasing, wild economic swings, and rapid, unpredictable political change, not what we intended at all. What will we create with the next wave of change, disruption, and innovation?

10.10 George Colony, Chairman of the Board & CEO, Forrester Research
The Age of the Customer
Empowered customers are disrupting every industry, ushering in a 20-year business cycle Forrester calls the age of the customer. In the age of the customer, the only sustainable competitive advantage is knowledge of and engagement with customers. The most successful enterprises will reinvent themselves to systematically understand and serve increasingly powerful customers. Companies will have to substantially increase investment in mobile, big data, great customer experience, and disruptive business models to win and retain customers. While companies have always, to a greater or lesser extent, called themselves “customer-centric,” this is different. This is not about “customer-centric” thinking or “the customer is always right.” Instead, the new power of customers means that a focus on the customer now matters more than any other strategic imperative.
