Everybody Wants To Rule The World: Surviving And Thriving In A World Of Digital Giants

In a post-digital era, every startup begins as a data driven networks (DDDNs) and aspires to become a monopoly. While it may have taken previous businesses decades to form oligopolies or duopolies through natural market forces, today’s investors and founders craft every startup and DDDN to be a monopoly on day one.

This powerful aggregation of capital, customer, content, network ecosystem, technology, and talent is possible given the huge amounts of concentrated wealth among the investor class.  Thus, these DDDNs build massive digital feedback loops for all stakeholders (e.g. customers, employee, suppliers, and partners) and use this insight to mitigate risk, identify new opportunities, improve operational efficiency, anticipate what features buyers may want next, and drive dynamic pricing.  These DDDNs power the business graph which provides a disproportionately market advantage leading to duopolies.

As these DDDNs grow, their data and insights give them exponential advantage and their monopolistic powers increase.  Learn why existing organizations must immediately craft strategies to counter the rise of digital giants and how they can use similar techniques to build joint venture startups to organize, partner, and compete with new disruptive entrants before its too late.

Data Privacy 31st Human Right

Data Privacy: The 31st International Human Right For The Digital Age

Humanity faces the biggest human rights abuse in history – the loss of privacy and data privacy.  In an era of social networks, security cameras, and electronic medical records selling data privacy without compensating individuals, the general populace is in an uproar about their data privacy and privacy rights.

Learn how digital privacy has emerged as a type of property and understand how that human right should belong to the individual.   Once established as the 31st international human right, individuals can embrace this human right as property and trade it, broker it, monetize it, and take back control of how their property is used.  More importantly, the success of establishing data privacy as the 31st international human right will enable humanity to disconnect from the digital world without being judged and also pave the way for universal basic income.

Disrupting Digital Business

Disrupting Digital Business: The Post Sales, On Demand, Attention Economy Is Here

We’re standing at the dawn of a digital business revolution, but we barely realize it. As with the beginning of every revolution, those in the midst of it can feel it, sense it, and realize that something big is happening. Yet it’s hard to quantify the shift. The data isn’t clear. From how we interact with each other to how we engage with organizations, the shift is right in front of us. However, organizations usually react to change by denying, delaying, and disparaging — a key reason why 52 percent of the Fortune 500 have been merged, acquired, gone bankrupt, or fallen off the list since 2000.

Digital business disruption is no longer an option—it’s a necessity. Social, organizational, and technology shifts require a new way of thinking about business and business models built around the stakeholder.  Successful organizations leverage a digital DNA to deliver experiences and outcomes, and to transition from selling products to keeping brand promises.

Chief Digital Officers

The Shift From Chief Digital Officers To Digitally Enabled CXO’s

The existing leadership structure in most organizations is ill-equipped to drive the change required for dominating digital disruption. Consequently, the emergence of the chief digital officer (CDO) is essential for the new age of digital business.
Though the current debate often centers on whether the CIO or CMO will win out or whether chief digital officers may arise from an expanded role for the CIO, we see these arguments as short-sighted. As with any other massive transformation, the skill sets required for digital will be infused throughout the executive ranks and the organization’s DNA. The pathway forward will involve a multidisciplinary approach. However, the skills behind digital business transformation will require chief digital officers or those tasked with digital.
Join R “Ray” Wang (@rwang0), head of Silicon Valley-based Constellation Research and best selling author of the Harvard Business Review Press book, Disrupting Digital Business, as he shows how the path forward from CDO to Digital CXO’s will take place over the next 3 years.
