The biggest mistake you can make in a truly connected world is to be disconnected. But transforming your organization to compete in an increasingly digital-born marketplace is a daunting task.

At conXion 2021 (October 5-7), Geoffrey Moore, the world-famous organizational theorist and author, will offer some advice on how your company can become truly connected and move the needle toward change.

I had the privilege of speaking to Moore in preparation of his interview with our CTO Bernd Gross.

Here are some tidbits from our discussion, which he will shine some light on during his interview with Bernd at conXion.

  • The purpose of your company is to serve your customer, not to serve yourself.
  • Companies may have transformed themselves, but the customer became more disconnected in the process.
  • You can change your operating model to focus on the success of your customers, but you need to be continually responding to their needs.

He will discuss the four prescriptive zones of transformation, outlined in his book, Zone to Win: Organizing to Compete in an Age of Disruption, and how to find the “trapped value” in your business model by becoming truly connected.

As Gross said: “The potential of a truly connected enterprise means you can do the unthinkable and achieve the unimaginable.”

This can only happen with a meeting of minds, connecting with partners, customers and colleagues to share ideas, vent about issues and learn something new. This is what conXion 2021 (October 5-7) is all about.
