Benefits of PowerMaps

If your industry is being disrupted you can wait until a rival does something new that appears to produce superior results, benchmark yourself against it as a "best practice" and invest to catch up.

Or you can leapfrog your rivals by learning how to out-think and out-move them so they have to play catch up with you.
Out-ThinkOut-Move
1. Real-Time Strategy
Strategy can be hard, which is why so many business leaders outsource their strategic thinking to management consultants. But strategy is about making choices that differentiate you from the competition — so simply copying what others are doing isn't real strategy. In this short video we're going to make strategy as simple as possible, so you can start doing this yourself for your business.
2. How to Fix Your Organisation in 9 Steps
Many leaders think their organisations are in a mess. They also believe organisational culture actively resists attempts to try and change it. But these are symptoms of a deeper, underlying problem.

Too often leaders focus on what they want the organisation to 'transform' into tomorrow, rather than making the next best steps today. They end up sacrificing the certainty of today for the uncertainty of tomorrow.

So, instead of launching yet another 'revolution' aimed at what you're trying to transform into tomorrow, adopt these 'evolutionary' steps to make your organisation a more purposeful and responsive place today.
3. What to Build, Buy or Outsource
Many leaders suspect their organisations are outsourcing the wrong things. They blame bad project specification and project managers who don't get the right service level agreements.

However, there's a deeper problem here that comes from breaking the golden rule of outsourcing: You should only outsource what you fully understand.
4. How to Start Innovating
Many leaders complain their organisations aren't innovative because their people lack creativity. However, there are five different types of innovation and they all require different types of creativity.

So make sure you're all talking about the same type of innovation first. Failure to do this will result in more wasted time and resources and more pointless rounds of the blame game as to why you aren't innovating.
5. How to Play the Disruptive Innovation Game
'Disruption' is a buzzword in many organisations. Leaders are either hopeful of winning the market by disrupting their rivals, or fearful that disruptive rivals will out-manoeuvre them. The problem though is there are two types of disruption — one of them is predictable, the other isn't.

To play the 'disruption game' successfully you must first learn which type of 'disruptive innovation' you're facing, as this will shape your strategic response.
