Disruption Management

Untangle new and difficult business challenges

What do management teams do? They guide an enterprise to success. With that kind of responsibility, any distraction from fundamentals can create an unreasonable degree of risk.

That said, ‘black swan’ events — unexpected and tough to predict — can hit even the best-run enterprise. And when that happens, it demands dedicated thinking, even as everyday business must carry on. It makes little sense to maintain a SWAT team of specialists within the business to solve an urgent problem that might happen only once every 10 or 100 years.
