THE FREIGHT TRAIN OF CHANGE
Amazon sold its first book in July of 1995.
By the end of 2017 they will have sold $196 billion worth of books and other items.So many items … so little time …It’s why Amazon is raking in about 44 cents out of every e-commerce dollar spent in the U.S.
A year ago it was 38 cents out of every dollar.
Are you paying rapt attention to how this snarling, online locomotive is leading the freight train of change? Do you see the implications for your company, career and community?
Each week you and I are watching from the sidelines and seeing how companies like Amazon, Netflix and Uber are expanding choice and convenience while delivering extraordinary value. 2017 has been a sobering year for many corporate giants that were long overdue for a swift kick in the strategy ass. Sears Canada is just one of the latest lumbering dinosaurs to have their butts kicked, but it didn’t come from being blindsided by hip, seductive tools like technology, e-commerce or YouTube.
The real issue is far deeper.The implications of the ubiquitous “Amazon Effect” are both staggering and inescapable. But, you need to be listening for it.
And hear what it means to your organization, your career and the community you live in.Hop on board and let’s ride the rails together as we hear the whistle of opportunity coming from the inevitable Freight Train of Change powering through this edition of The Reinvention Chronicles.
