Overview

A "must-read"; a "first-of-its-kind comprehensive guidebook to navigate a disruptive world, empower individuals and organizations to take agency over their future destinations"; "never before has the world needed such tools... to inform not only how to survive, but thrive."

"The book will help readers become 'Response-able'... getting out of the victim mindset and offering more agency over how to prepare for and respond to disruption."

"Roger Spitz and Lidia Zuin take us on a ride to find out how we can confront change, by deconstructing disruption to make the process not only easy but exciting and hopeful."

"This book should be required reading... It is truly one for the ages."

This is some of the praise that "Reframing and Navigating Disruption," the first standalone Volume of The Definitive Guide to Thriving on Disruption, has received from thought leaders.

More than a book, this work is a field guide for businesses and individuals alike to navigate change; a compass; a system of content, resources, and ideas on how to stay relevant and capture opportunities in our rapidly changing world.

The book lays the foundations to make sense of our increasingly complex, nonlinear, and unpredictable world, where disruption is no longer merely a single or recurring event, but a steady state, expanding its impact.

To flourish, we must understand the velocity, trajectory, and magnitude of the drivers of change, whether technological or otherwise. After examining the constants and drivers of disruption, we learn to rewire our mindset by casting assumptions aside and anticipate inflection points by thinking like a futurist. The book also explores the implications and opportunities arising from today's paradigm shifts, emerging technologies, AI, the "internet of existence," the energy transition, and climate.

Roger Spitz and Lidia Zuin draw on decades of insights from advising entrepreneurs, CEOs, boards, and shareholders in Silicon Valley and globally on evaluating their companies, competitiveness, strategic investments, and disruptions ahead. A foresight strategist, venture capitalist, and writer, Roger's expertise lies at the intersection of futures studies, systems thinking, and sustainable value creation. Lidia is a journalist, science fiction writer, and professional futurist.
