How to successfully manage a radical revolution

According to John Wilpers, senior director and Juan Señor, senior partner of Innovation Media Consulting: “Our organisations do not look or act sufficiently differently than they did when we were print-based, or maybe doing print and basic web work.”

How can they now be expected to conceive of and create content and sell marketing solutions for tech platforms they barely know?”

That’s the down side.

The up side is that the opportunity is still there for the taking. People still trust and value our brands. But time is running out.

If we wait much longer, even more of our former advertisers will be creating their own content and their own marketing campaigns, and our more nimble digital native competitors will have figured out how to steal our readers and advertisers.

So we must move fast and furiously.
