WHICH 50 : Culture change required as the big disruptors are emerging

WHICH 50 : Culture change required as the big disruptors are emerging | Digital intelligence | Scoop.it

So long as everyone is doing the same thing, boards and CEOs are not at risk of reputation or their jobs. Which, incidentally, might be one explanation for the remarkably consistent responses of news media leaderships to digital disruption.

Which-50's insight:

Unlike newspapers, bankers have an example to learn from: newspapers.
