It is all about Digitization, Innovation and Reinvention. Interesting to see, that CISCO was able to run a two and a half days event which involved C-Level Executive at the 7thCisco CEO.CIO Leadership Council, hosted by current Chairman and CEO John Chambers.

The result: 8 Key Issues to Survive in Business
  1. Short-term thinking and twisting to meet quarterly objectives is not the path to innovation.
  2. New business models like those from Uber and Airbnb are changing the competitive landscape.
  3. Physical and virtual businesses are merging and everyone, in time, will be a tech company.
  4. Partnering is critical to seize opportunities in rapidly evolving markets.
  5. Every organization needs to make security a core competency. This is being fueled by the explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the advanced skills of hackers.
  6. Mobility is trumping online presence, and millennials are the torchbearers. Get them, embrace them, or risk becoming irrelevant.
  7. The nature of work is changing; the new workforce will consist of value-driven jobs.
  8. Prepare to be disrupted, but play for the long-term.
“We’re at a tipping point,” John Chambers said in closing. “A change when you’re going to see every company become digital. And a time when strategic partnerships are going to become much more important.”
