Publisher's Summary

The proven, effective strategy for reinventing your business in the age of ever-present disruption

Disruption by digital technologies? That's not a new story. But what is new is the "wise pivot", a replicable strategy for harnessing disruption to survive, grow, and be relevant to the future. It's a strategy for perpetual reinvention across the old, now, and new elements of any business.

Rapid recent advances in technology are forcing leaders in every business to rethink long-held beliefs about how to adapt to emerging technologies and new markets. What has become abundantly clear: in the digital age, conventional wisdom about business transformation no longer works, if it ever did.

Based on Accenture's own experience of reinventing itself in the face of disruption, the company's real-world client work, and a rigorous two-year study of thousands of businesses across 30 industries, Pivot to the Future reveals methodical and bold moves for finding and releasing new sources of trapped value - unlocked by bridging the gap between what is technologically possible and how technologies are being used. The freed value enables companies to simultaneously reinvent their legacy and current and new businesses.

Pivot to the Future is for leaders who seek to turn the existential threats of today and tomorrow into sustainable growth, with the courage to understand that a wise pivot strategy is not a one-time event but a commitment to a future of perpetual reinvention, where one pivot is followed by the next and the next.

Critic Reviews

"Society is being transformed, and it won't stop. Incrementalism no longer cuts it. Ever-evolving digital technologies require a fundamental shift in attitude. Companies must continuously pivot to the new. But as profit windows shorten and one pivot follows the next, the opportunities are vast. Abbosh, Nunes, and Downes explain with some humility how Accenture, where they work, itself learned hard lessons about continuous transformation. Pivot to the Future offers deep insight into how to manage the twists and turns." (David Kirkpatrick, founder and editor in chief, Techonomy Media)

"Pivot to the Future - finally - presents a much-needed perspective that reinvigorates tired and outdated concepts of strategy. Instead of building an advantage and defending it, it shows how organizations can release waves of competitive advantage by freeing up trapped value. Instead of innovation for the Next Big Thing, this book shows how innovation plays a role in businesses at every stage. And instead of theorizing, it draws on a real-world journey to figure all this out." (Rita McGrath, best-selling author of The End of Competitive Advantage and professor at Columbia Business School)

"In Pivot to the Future, Omar Abbosh and his coauthors make a powerful case that successful innovation is a long-term game that requires constant pivots to evolve and change. Pivot to the Future will excite, energize, and empower leaders, helping them innovate intelligently, keep moving forward, and always be future-ready." (Michael Dell, CEO, Dell)
