Business agility is a key requirement for companies today. Market opportunities and threats change daily. Timeframes by which companies can react to these market forces, envision, build and deploy new business capabilities continue to decrease. In addition, technology increasingly spawns new market spaces and erodes the barriers to entry of existing markets. To adapt, companies must innovate in the areas of:
- New products or services
- New approaches to product delivery and / or service fulfillment
- New business models that allow customers to gain value more directly and with less effort
Success in today’s business environment can be linked to two related competencies: the ability to envision and to transform. Market players who envision opportunities that their competitors miss and then transform their organization to make these opportunities a reality can gain significant market share.
Apple’s decade of business success is illustrative of an organization mastering these two competencies – envisioning and transformation. Apple’s innovative products were spawned because of its ability to envision consumer needs where competitors could not. What enabled Apple’s rise to greatness was its ability to transform itself from a niche manufacturer of high-end personal computers into a consumer products juggernaut. To become great, Apple became an industry leader in competencies as diverse as global supply chain management, consumer retail sales and the music industry. It either transformed itself to master these domains or it transformed these domains to suit its business model.
