Disruption occurs when established models are replaced with something cheaper and more accessible. It happens all the time, in every industry.

  • What can be done now to prepare for, embrace, and take advantage of the coming changes, reap the benefits, and improve on your customer experience while you’re at it?
  • Plus, some good common sense rules to follow, with some potentially far-reaching and valuable technical implications.
