Let’s Face it, Adapting to Rapid Change is Stressful

June 2nd, 2017|Categories: ShareTracker Articles, ShareTracker Innovation Series, ShareTracker News|Tags: , |

It’s 3am and I’m wide awake.  I keep having this terrible nightmare.  I’m at the county science fair and I’ve got this beautiful volcano that I built from the red clay I dug out of my backyard. I’ve got the vinegar/baking soda and I’m ready to rock. And then I glance over to the kid next to me and he’s built an autonomous car. Oh Sh&%!  Let’s face it, adapting to rapid change is stressful.

Even the best have found themselves behind the curve on emerging trends. Twenty-two years ago this week… On May 26th, 1995, Bill Gates is famously known to have drafted a memo entitled “The Internet Tidal Wave” in which he described the internet as “the most important single development to come along since the IBM PC was introduced in 1981.” But first movers in the internet wave were already at full steam and Microsoft ended up late to the party.

Let’s just cut to the chase – The road to insolvency is paved with companies that chose not to innovate or did so too slowly. Innovation is the life’s blood of any company, but this is particularly true of technology companies.  But innovation doesn’t end after an “aha moment” that gets your company started.  It’s as important for a mature company as a startup.  Titans of technology like Jeff Bezos and Larry Page often speak to this very circumstance.

Jeff Bezos, founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon.com,

What really matters is, companies that don’t continue to experiment, companies that don’t embrace failure, they eventually get in a desperate position where the only thing they can do is a Hail Mary bet at the very end of their corporate existence,” 

Larry Page, co-founder of Google and currently CEO of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc.

“Many companies get comfortable doing what they have always done, with a few incremental changes. This kind of incrementalism leads to irrelevance over time, especially in technology, because change tends to be revolutionary, not evolutionary.”
