Organizations today face a growing threat of disruption. Moore’s law has accelerated the pace of change astronomically. 20 years ago the cost of starting a technology business was $5 million; today it is less than $5,000 and continues to decline. Venture funding in the US alone has skyrocketed above $100 billion and is anticipated to rise. Over 75% of Fortune 500 companies listed in 2011 are expected to be removed from the index by 2027. With all this change, organizations need to see what they are not currently seeing and predict their future by building it today. This is why we came up with an idea.
In the intelligence community, a red team is an independent group outside of the organization that enhances the effectiveness of a mission by scanning for vulnerabilities. Red teams improve future-readiness by integrating fresh viewpoints and uncovering blindspots. Similarly, the goal of the RAD.Team is to help leaders discover disruptive threats and opportunities.
The Rent-A-Disruptor program brings together a bespoke team of Silicon Valley technologists, designers, business strategists, engineers, and/or product developers to study your market position and strategy. The team will propose ways that innovative competitors might disrupt you. This process is designed to uncover both threats and opportunities for your business.
