Slide 1

How Technology will help evaluate itself Patterns exist in how people embrace new concepts We follow the same approaches to evaluate, invest and build over and over Markets reveal if they are ready for innovation Innovation can be ahead of market readiness, so it’s not just technology; it’s behavior Humans also create, follow patterns based on what they desire We know what we want, act on it and show it via our data trails online Predictive models can now help identify innovative concepts, market niches and human change agents at an earlier stage. We need to look around the next corner to find the new edge for opportunity

Slide 2

A new index can now be created to help us understand the significance of human behavior, technology advances and investment decisions in the face of transformational change The Social Disruption Index

Slide 3

What Is The Social Disruption Index? We are currently in a revolution, driven by social/mobile technology, that is transforming how we communicate in every part of life, both personally and in business. This transformation is both destroying and creating businesses and business models; every industry is, or will be, affected It is not a question of IF an industry will be disrupted, but WHEN. The Social Disruption Index (SDI) measures relative disruption by industry segment. The SDI measures and analyzes whether an industry is in a pre-disruptive state, currently being disrupted, in a post-disruptive state, or anywhere along that timeline (its "Disruption Stage").

A simple model drawn from hundreds of attributes

Slide 5

How Do We Measure Disruption? Dozens of attributes within three key factors for any given industry as an indication of its Disruption Stage, such as: Start-Ups – how many, how big, how much momentum? Start-ups reflect perceived opportunity Investors – How much $ is flowing, at what stage Investing is the arms race of innovation Marketplace – How restless are customers, leaders; how are their habits driving change(or not)? Has technology advance reshaped action or just rhetoric

Understanding how consumer/customer behavior changes as a technology takes shape is critical to watch, learn and understand

The 1,9,90 Model 1 9 Influencers Top thought leaders – 1% or less who define the conversation. Advocates 2nd concentric circle of influence – where the top influencers interpret and share influencer information. Enthusiasts Like-minded people who unconsciously react to and shape markets based on what they find online or hear via friends/networks

Slide 9

We will also look at the elasticity of innovation Markets are not all equal in response to technological disruption

Slide 10

What Factors Enable or Stall Disruption? All enterprises and industries pressured by the new connections among people and how information is disseminated Some sectors naturally more prone to disruption than others. The SDI will analyze multiple factors, some of which accelerate while others stall disruption, including: Presence of new start-ups / delta of venture investment Commodity vs. specialized nature of products or services Relevance of higher information velocity Legal and regulatory framework and barriers

A Visual Representation of Change

Slide 12

Can Also Measure Start Up Potential Openness to disruption vs. number of start-ups Best opportunity space: high disruption/few start-ups Worst opportunity space: regulatory issues, many contenders Can’t measure individual start-up success, but can measure comparative market potential Where are start-ups most likely to penetrate next?

Slide 13

SDI Has Marketing Impacts Channel effectiveness will vary by disruption stage Messaging modes will shift Power of consumers will rise as disruption deepens Radical shifts in tactics as disruption takes hold A new normal emerges in post-disruption
