||CleanVertical Business Transformation:The Implications||The buzz: “The reason why it is so difficult for existing firms to capitalize on disruptive innovations is that their processes and their business model that make them good at the existing business actually make them bad at competing for the disruption” (Clayton Christensen).

Where, why and how should you focus your time and resources? The experts speak. Marc Geall: “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete” (B. Fuller). Peter Maier: “Dreams and Details – the winning formula” (Jim Hagemann Snabe). Svend Wittern: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark” (Michelangelo).

The successful ones follow five patterns that naturally translate into market dominance, exploding margins and generating volumes of sensitive data.
