I’ve spent the last few years studying how large companies are getting disrupted by upstarts and companies who are thinking differently, and how they react. We’ve all seen the speed by which new companies are emerging and taking market share from
incumbents, yet many organizations are stuck. They can’t change fast enough.
The reasons are rooted deeply in leadership and culture, but could be turned around by unlearning old management styles and applying what the disruptors have been using, right back at them.
This blog is my intention of exploring these new paradigms of leadership and do my share in defining the future of work, a future that I believe is actually now! I hope that some of my work contributes lasting value to leaders who have come to realize that there are no old roads to new place and are looking to reinvent themselves.
I’m currently a Global Vice President of Customer Strategy SAP, where I’ve spent the past ten years working with some of the largest companies in the world. I’ve led and executed major transformations at SAP to make the organization more responsive to change and successfully enter new markets. I’ve led and transformed functions such as strategy, innovation, communications, and operations, coaching and creating leaders in the process. I’ve also been fortunate to work with many exciting start-ups and entrepreneurs and had stints as both entrepreneur and intrapreneur.
I’d love nothing more than to hear from you, so drop me a line and let me know what you think. Get me on twitter @reuvengorsht or via email at reuven AT reuvengorsht.com
