Edge Stream

The Edge Stream cre­ates next-gen­er­a­tion glob­al orga­ni­za­tions equipped to lead an exist­ing or new industry.

FEATURES

The Edge Stream requires adopt­ing a dif­fer­ent mind­set. While an estab­lished cor­po­ra­tion requires con­trol over exe­cu­tion and is pre­dom­i­nant­ly focused on improv­ing effi­cien­cy, cre­at­ing an inno­v­a­tive orga­ni­za­tion requires search-based method­olo­gies geared toward find­ing the right val­ue propo­si­tion and busi­ness mod­el capa­ble of dis­rupt­ing a spe­cif­ic industry.

Core Stream

The Core Stream allows you to adapt your exist­ing orga­ni­za­tion to exter­nal indus­try dis­rup­tion by embrac­ing the adop­tion of new tech­nolo­gies and orga­ni­za­tion­al techniques—all while main­tain­ing your cur­rent busi­ness model.

FEATURES

In addi­tion to facil­i­tat­ing a com­pre­hen­sive under­stand­ing of the exist­ing orga­ni­za­tion and indus­try, the Core Stream also explores dis­rup­tion com­ing from out­side the indus­try. Your cur­rent orga­ni­za­tion has a work­ing busi­ness mod­el and exist­ing lega­cy that you can’t change from one day to the next, so even as you adapt it to exter­nal disruption—which can be viewed as either a threat or a great opportunity—you will pre­serve the basic foundation.
