Disruption may be bad for lethargic companies but can present opportunities for companies that are nimble enough to ride the wave
For many years, it was assumed that prices only rise. This is no longer true. Falling prices can wreak havoc on the returns of an existing investment. The world was previously divided into the new and the old economy, where the former was riding the wave of disruption while the latter was considered boring but predictable. This is also no longer true. Disruption is everywhere. Information deluge is making it difficult to separate the signals from the noise, resulting in distraction to the point that decision-making itself has become paralysed.
