Corporate Climate Check: Disruption, the New “Normal”

The times they are a-changing…

One could argue that this has always been true. There have been constant shifts throughout the 20th and 21st centuries that have made things unpredictable and uncertain for many workers and businesses. I don’t think there can be any argument that the last decade has brought a level of change that is unprecedented. However, a constant stream of new “disruptions” to the marketplace has kept us on our toes in a way that we’ve never had to before.

This decade has been one of global integration, and there is a fundamental shift underway in terms of the way the world works. Technology is bringing us unprecedented levels of interconnection and interdependencies, and we are all connected on more dimensions now than we were even five years ago. Technology is also changing expectations of service, communication, and human interaction. Generational gaps (Gen Y, Millennials, Boomers) can cause rifts in corporations that demand accelerated learning and new ways to communicate. Problems are becoming more complex and the skills people need to address these complex issues are ever-changing.

We are now, more than ever, subject to the causes and effects of any number of unseen and unpredictable forces. From alternative currencies, to increases in the project-based and “side hustle” workforces, vulnerabilities to super bugs, and disruptions in food chain supplies, things are changing faster than many people and companies can keep up. These disruptions are only going to be coming at us more rapidly as time goes on. Think about the impact that severe global climate change will have on every aspect of our society. Or think about our mounting energy and water issues. What are the solutions to these problems and how will those solutions change the world? We just don’t know yet!

We just have to accept that. These disruptions are now the norm, not the exception. And speaking of “disruptions”…
