The deadline is approaching for the first industry award to celebrate the leaders and teams who successfully apply emerging and disruptive technologies for their organizations.
The era of digital disruption is upon us. Since the year 2000, 52 percent of the Fortune 500 has dropped off the list. Replaced, beaten, and bankrupted by the advancing forces of digital disruption. Digital technology has created a new business environment. Business giants that clung to the business models that produced success in the 20th century found themselves out of touch, outmaneuvered, and off the Fortune 500 list.
This new business environment calls for leaders who can guide their organizations through the digital thicket. Leaders adept at selecting and championing technologies that enable digital transformation. Leaders who can craft and implement business models that harness the transformative power of disruptive technology.
