The word disruption is thrown around an awful lot these days. Everyone is trying to be it, except of course for those who aren't. So many industries have invested in systems that rely on things to stay more or less the way they are, on predictable business-as-usual or at least a predictable rate of change. The problem, it would seem though, is that nothing is static. So, to help measure the susceptibility of any given industry to current disruptive change and/or future disruption, the folks over at Accenture have created the following two-axis scatter plot, and the folks at Harvard Business Review discuss in "How Likely Is Your Industry to Be Disrupted? This 2×2 Matrix Will Tell You":
"When faced with disruption, many leaders cling to their legacy business. But leaders who understand the various disruptive states and their company’s place therein will be more likely to see disruption as a positive force — not as a cue to protect the old but as a compelling prompt to lead in the new. They will see disruption as a means to improve their organization and become more financially viable, possibly by venturing into new markets."
What I don't see called out specifically here is education. I'm curious where they would put it on the plot.
