The old business models are being transformed digitally. Technology being an enabler is changing the fundamentals of business and the revenue stream of many organizations. Majority of these changes are occurring through innovation. Business leaders need to understand this paradigm shift or they will be left behind. This paper briefly looks at how Netflix is winning in the digital transformation space.
I’m not too sure if you agree. In my opinion an industry–any industry, cannot be in a state of disruption and transformation forever. Whilst digital is the catalyst for change, there usually comes a time when a change results in something.
All work must produce, and all investment has to show returns. Let’s start thinking beyond the words and into the outcome.
Living in an age of constant change today, these changes must now start with the thinking – What are we transforming or disrupting today that will be a compliant and an adoption tomorrow?

These come with different, independent leaderships at the helm who can operate without being inter-dependent on their sister companies.

However, respectfully I disagree with the two definitions above. Life’s meaning is not in the destination that you get at the end, but in the things gained from the journey taken.
Over her birthday dinner last night, daughter Sarah asked what my motto in life is. Without hesitation I answered; “always find a way”. That’s my motto, and that’s also what I advised her. And to anyone else asking, this answer remain the same.
Always find a way – to make something out of nothing. Challenges happen, it’s part of living.
Always find a way – to turn problems into solutions. We’ll always be called on to give advice.
Always find a way – to see the other side. We won’t fully understand things unless we’ve walked a mile in them.
Always find a way – to practise patience. The world is moving fast enough, stop and enjoy the moment.
Always find a way – to be nice. When we start with a smile we get smiles in return.
We’ll just disappoint ourselves if we think being happy is an end goal. Happiness is a state and it can be achieved even if we don’t think it’s there.
Always find a way. Because life’s hard. Just never give up trying.
