    “Pivot to the Future,” New Book from Accenture, Provides Roadmap to Help Business Leaders Navigate Continuous Disruption

    Traditional responses to business disruption, such as one-off business transformation and fast-follower approaches, are outdated and won’t be enough to help companies achieve sustainable growth and weather the challenges that lie ahead, according to a new book by Accenture (ACN). “Pivot to the Future: Discovering Value and Creating Growth in a Disrupted World” argues that the emergence of a new wave of technologies — including artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, 5G and quantum computing — requires businesses to continuously reinvent themselves using new management and capital-allocation strategies. Built on Accenture’s rigorous multiyear study of thousands of businesses across 30 industries, a candid account of its own reinvention, and insights from its extensive work with its global clients, “Pivot to the Future” provides new practical approaches to help business leaders make bold, sometimes contrarian, strategic decisions that can unlock millions of dollars trapped in today’s core businesses — value that can be used for the disruptive innovation that drives future prosperity.

    Success for Insurers in the Emerging “Post-Digital” World Will Require Enhanced Customer Engagement Through Personalized, Real-Time Offerings, According to Accenture Report

The report, Technology Vision for Insurance 2019, notes that we’re entering a new “post-digital” era, where success is based on an organization’s ability to master artificial intelligence (AI) and other new technologies.
