A great book that talks about different industries and how technology is changing them forcing them either out of business or to adapt to new ways of working. Mentions the companies which survived and those that didn't. Features biggies like Amazon, Netflix, Google, Reliance Jio, etc.

A worthwhile read, if only to reiterate that change is the only constant - more so in this day and age.

Writing style: some chapters offer a compelling writing style (the last two), others could be better. I wasn’t ‘taken’ by the book, especially by its set up, which explains why it took me so long to finish.

A decent book on strategy with some good frameworks and excellent case studies to chew on. I gave this book 3 stars because there are absolutely no footnotes or references cited although they lean heavily on “research” and external idea throughout the book and a lot of it reads as a lengthy content marketing piece for Accenture. If they only added references (I trust no author), I’d be at 4 stars with hesitation be because of the incessant selling.

This is a book about how businesses should prepare for the present and ongoing disruption caused by new technologies. Pivot to the Future is well-written, although it is Accenture-centric. No surprise there, as they author it.

There were great insights gained from stories of business successes and failures - the results of good or not-so-good responses to what they call big bang disruption and compressed disruption.

The "wise pivot" is an especially useful idea - and not just for business success.

With my background in chemical engineering and as a prospective consultant at Accenture, I chose to read this book to give me insight on some strategies that are practiced at the firm. Pivot to the future discusses techniques on how some companies may release trapped value within their organizations by utilizing "pivot" strategies to enhance old, present, or new products/services that are offered. I enjoyed reading about big name companies from different industries and how they approached stayin ...more
