The Anatomy of a Disruptor

Session 1883 -
The Anatomy of a Disruptor

How do disruptors disrupt? How do legacy companies avoid being disrupted or even disrupt disruptors? Few answers to these questions can be found in the management literature of our day. Yet much insight is available in the literature on military conflict. Keys to the anatomy of disruptors can be found in the cockpits of jet fighter aces and the command and control techniques used by various protagonists in WW II and after. George Stalk will summarize the insights into the anatomy of disruptors that can be gleaned from military conflict. Stephen Bungay will explain how those principles can be applied to accelerate the tempo of action in large business organizations. Arne Roock will discuss how a real-life business disruptor works.
