Our research shows that more than 40% of companies in 20 industries worth 26 trillion dollars are highly susceptible to disruption. What’s doing the disrupting? Ecosystems; networks of cross industry players working together to define, build and execute market creating solutions- each delivering a piece or providing a capability. Increasingly, businesses must pursue innovative agile business models to remain competitive and grow outside of their traditional core business. Many executives see ecosystems as a winning play. 76% agreed that in the next five years, business models will become unrecognizable with ecosystems being the main change agent. However, while 84% say ecosystems are important to their strategy, 37% are unable to balance the current business while exploring the new; and though 63% see innovation as ecosystem’s top opportunity, only 35% ranked recruiting partners as one of their top three capabilities.

The New Face of Corporate Quality
Quality control is due for an overhaul. Often seen as the policing department that slows innovation and doesn’t speak the same business language, quality teams have been marginalized. With the rise of digital driving rapid changes to operating models, maintaining quality and preventing lapses is more critical than ever. Our solution: the strategic quality advisor- part scientist; part diplomat.
The new adviser is embedded within business units- equally invested in innovation, and has a depth of knowledge of quality principles, techniques and metrics. The key benefit- proactivity. Greater integration can help advisors predict rather than just react to quality issues- a first step in establishing the new role. Swap the lab coat for a suit coat; hire and train employees with digital and business acumen. In addition to scientific knowledge, train existing quality staff on business and collaboration skills.
