A lament to the Enterprise of yesteryear

We're being hit by disruptive innovation! 


Our industry is being commoditised! 



Our business is complex! 


We're behind the curve!


We're going to innovate!


We've created a strategy!


Hired the best!


They said they were experts!


Marketing is key!


And the future is Private!


Or Enterprise!


Or Hybrid!


But we need to re-organise!


We have the solution!


Our strategy tells us so!


If we just fix our culture!


Then this time, it'll be different!


Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!


An ode to a small lump of enterprise I found in my portfolio one midsummer morning, a lament to the Enterprise of yesteryear. Best repeated with the true poetic wit of a Vogon constructor fleet.

We're being hit by disruptive innovation! 
Our industry is being commoditised! 
Our business is complex!
We're behind the curve!
We're going to innovate!

We've created a strategy!
Hired the best!
They said they were experts!
Marketing is key!
And the future is private! 
Or Enterprise!
Or Hybrid!

But we need to re-organise!
We have the solution!
Our strategy says so!
If we just fix our culture!
Then this time, it'll be different!
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!

Anyone looking for a short cut out of this, I'm afraid I can't help you. However, I would suggest mapping your landscape ideally by going on a get fit regime and cleaning up the enterprise then afterwards applying some thought. Adapting to the changing technological-economic environment is not a choice.
