In short, everything is changing.

They also acknowledged that the many threads and connections among different areas of operation, and between the past and the present, would require disruptive approaches to achieve desired results.

These leaders may feel confident about their strategic direction, but they know their current models won’t get them where they need to go. Thus they need to become their own disruptors.
