New Direction

I’m going to discontinue the New CIO string of posts for a while. Other things are on my mind. You can see the series of posts here.

I recently finished reading the book Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of Innovation and it has some good thoughts and ideas. Here are two:

The digital disruptor’s mindset is one in which the default answer is yes. This isn’t the result of sheer optimism. It’s an optimism born out of the facts. And it’s based on exploiting three elements of today’s innovation infrastructure: cheap or free tools, digital platforms, and digital consumers.


When companies adopt disruption, they do old things in disruptive new ways. When companies internalize disruption, they advance to the next level, they initiate the next disruption.

Food for thought on a Saturday night in Singapore. Best wishes to you all.
