My friend Katarina likes dolphins more than sharks and she wrote an nice article about it:
Competition is dead. Long live playfulness & cooperation!

Dolphins are sweet and smart as my friend but they are not always playful.
Mighty consulting corporations as Accenture are comparing digital change management with sharks.
In the past, a product or service lifecycle in a market segment gained traction in the shape of a bell curve…. Now, markets are conquered with a shark fin burst of domination. A peak comes early, led by innovators and early adopters, and then it’s time again to extend or enhance the product. Think of how Google, Airbnb and Facebook built billion-dollar companies over very short times. In the illustration below, you see that these companies were and are operating in the shark fin red zone….Perhaps time will show that only the digital predators—the sharks of this world—will succeed in volatile, complex and fast-moving digital business.
Clemens Oertel is a managing director in Accenture Strategy. Article: Why digital disruption resembles a shark fin more than a bell curve.
In this interesting article are Clemens talking about business in a shark-style: ”a sort of ”violent” success, frequently shakes the status quo…allowing new players to step in and grab a slice of the market….”.
When its time for the next edition of my book Sharkonomics I perhaps could swim over and interview Clemens, to get more shark cases.
Thanks to Katarina Chowra for sending my this article.

How do you create future business with the help of your customers and ambassadors? No matter what industry you work in, you can take the help of your customers, ambassadors and employees to develop the business. Let the Power of the Crowd help you with your challenge!
In my opinion is the speakers the National team of crowd business and there team Captain is Stefan Broman (above picture).
Sweden is in many way a crowd culture, that is one of the reason I wrote my ONE book based in Sweden (ONE is about the DNA of consumer power).
