Companies change. Transformations. Disruptions. Alterations. Adaptations. Migrations. Modernizations. Rationalizations. They respond to circumstantial change in market, technology and culture. They respond to ripples, cascades, leverages, balances, crises.
The rates in company change are accelerating. Times-to-change are shortening. This makes huge claims on a companies’ ability to change. Is the company still able to respond to changing requirements? Is the company agile enough? Are legacies blocking progress? Are visions beyond reach?
Companies are heading towards a climax. The climax occurs when requirements to change outreach on abilities to change. They outreach in profoundness, in accuracy, in impact, in scope, in time. When that happens, growth turns into decline, prosperity into stagnation. Companies are at risk.
Companies need a paradigm shift. In order to move beyond the climax, they need change in their practices of steering and structuring the company. They need change in their thinking about company progress. They need to rebuild their companies on modern foundations. They need to understand the big shift that is occurring in company creation and need to learn how to create their companies with beyond the climax type of practices in steering and structuring. They need to discover what new type of companies is emerging.
