Disruption has two sides, or two edges of the sword: threat and opportunity. Disruptive forces, ranging from COVID-19 to silicon chip shortages, must be an accepted constant, no matter the company type, industry, product, or solution. These disruptions threaten well-established—and proven successful—business models and strategies, forcing change on a short timescale to keep up. Technology advances further enhance those threats, especially towards industrial operators where high complexity workflows and value chains are common.
