Long term competitive advantage is dead.

In a world where new technologies emerge at pace, those who anticipate change and are quickly able to adapt will flourish.

Organizations and individuals alike must reinvent themselves constantly; experiment and learn; identify new opportunities, exploit them fast, and move on.

In this world it is the entrepreneur, the experimenter, the risk taker who will thrive.
