Disruptive Innovation Challenges Business Consultants to Understand Behavior

Consultants are facing extraordinary changes in every industry, which is making it harder to identify and execute sustainable solutions. How do you best support, advise and mentor your clients when they are faced with unusual “competitors”, that is, the Disruptive Innovators?

Disruptive innovation is not new. Clayton M. Christensen first mentioned this theory in 1995. It’s only recently that industry has begun to recognize that finding new markets and new innovations to take to markets, might be worth pursuing to build their businesses.

So, what is Disruption Innovation?

Investopedia defines it as, “A technology whose application significantly affects the way a market or industry functions. a classic example (is) the internet.”

Interestingly, disruptive innovations come, not necessarily from the big end of town, but from entrepreneurs and even cottage industries. That is the mum at home or the guy in his garage.

This speed of change that likely threatens your clients can place business consultants at a disadvantage, leaving you unable to advise clients on how best to manage the impact of these disruptive innovators. Both you as the business consultant and your clients must be far more adaptable in your thinking – and the clients in their operational business structures – in order to make the quick pivots to deal with threatening changes.


The benefits of agility

Start-ups don’t have to worry about processes and procedures. They don’t have to “get everyone on board” to change. They don’t have to persuade their board or stakeholders. This gives them a huge advantage over established businesses.

They can take an idea and product to market using minimal input. They can market using social media. They can mockup their product and get friends to try it and provide the feedback to understand what customers might need. Who knew we’d be shopping online or having our coffee in “pop ups”? Who knew we’d be doing business of every kind online with our feet up and watching TV?

Many of us fear change and yet we are currently in the middle of a generation that welcomes, encourages and chases disruption.


Headache or opportunity?

This kind of pressure for push, push, activity puts established business on notice. They may want to find more innovative approaches to their business but are significantly restricted in what they can do – hence the potential headache for you as a consultant.

So, this begs the question – where do consultants fit in to this world of innovative disruption? Perhaps more importantly, how can a behavioral approach power innovative disruption?

Consultants who want to offer a much more effective service in this ever-changing world of disruption innovation need to approach their offering from a completely different place. First, consultants need to know human behavior is relevant at a very deep level. They need to understand the behavioural issues for all organizations.

When pitching for a contract in this climate of disruption innovation you must understand the biases and emotions that cloud judgment and impact decisions. You need to understand that the corporate world may well have the money to invest in innovation, but unlike the mum at home, or the man in his garage, they will see innovation as fraught with uncertainties. People like to know what is certain when they are making decisions.

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, says, “focusing on what won’t change has been the center of Amazon’s strategy.” He suggests that you should build a business strategy around the things you know are stable over time.


From Bezos to behavior

Well, natural DNA Behavioral insights, if measured using robust methodologies, will last forever as they do not change, and they pervade every aspect of how a business is run and the decisions made.

Much has been documented about cognitive biases and deviations from rational decision making. As a consultant the solution is clear: You must know the inherent behavior, decision making and biases of the executives you work with.

Seeing innovation from a behavioral perspective can lead to more effective decision-making outcomes. A behavioral approach to working with companies to help them become more comfortable with disruptive innovation will put you in a significant place to offer advice more in tune with the challenges the corporate world faces from corporate disruption.

Understanding behaviors will inform:

  • What’s getting in the way of the business being more innovative.
  • Who on the team will be more adaptable and able to pivot with fast changes caused by disruption?
  • Who on the team has the innovative thinking to identify what is happening next and come up with solutions?
  • Why leaders might be challenged and holding back those in the business who welcome disruptive innovation (in other words, are threatened by more innovative people and close them down).
  • How best to managing stakeholders and important “others” in the business when risky decisions have to be made.
  • How to see disruptive innovation as a new-world concept to be embraced without fear.
