Episode 1: The Kinetic Enterprise: Built to evolve

January 10, 2020

“Built to last” has been the prevailing paradigm for business, but it has its limitations. It implies that transformation is a one-time journey—with a single destination. And it implies that what we know about business today remains true, eternally. But with the pace of disruption increasing at all levels of business, the journey never really ends. Deloitte advocates a paradigm shift—from “built to last” to “built to evolve.” This new vision is not about a perfect end state, but about ready capability. It is not about a single destination, but about any destination. Hear from Deloitte and senior IT executives about how businesses can shift—and need to shift—toward the Kinetic Enterprise.
