Tech disruption has accelerated to become what I call Industrial Darwinism. Digital technology companies are displacing, and often destroying, the market leaders that once seemed invulnerable.
- The world’s biggest taxi company owns no cars (Uber)
- The world’s biggest media company creates no media (Facebook)
- The world’s largest accommodations company has no real estate (Airbnb)
- The world’s largest retailer has no inventory (Amazon)
How did this happen? The stories behind these disruptions are amazing. To share them, we’ve produced a series of short case studies on digital innovation.
The first three case studies in the series tell how:
- Netflix, a tiny startup, destroyed $8.5 billion behemoth Blockbuster
- Amazon reinvented retail and surpassed Walmart’s market cap in just 2 decades
- Apple crushed Blackberry and Nokia with a product consumers didn’t even know they wanted
