Tip of the Spear (http://www.thespear.co) is an innovative new company that directly answers the question, “What does technology disruption mean to me?”
From digital disruption in almost every imaginable business arena to fundamental change in the everyday fabric of personal and social lives – change is here.
“The 'Tip' of the spear – eight exponentially changing technologies, any one of which is at the level of the invention of movable type or the splitting of the atom – is moving dramatically ahead of the tail,” founder and author, Jim Gibson says. He adds, “There are three things I know to be true. The slope of the disruption curve is dramatically increasing. The technology ‘genie’ never goes back in the bottle. And, our linear systems of human organization are unprepared.”
The result: an unleveled global playing field, fear of job loss and fundamental changes to the way businesses and governments operate around the world.
By deeply researching the sources of technology change and our global responses, the Tip of the Spear (TOTS) framework helps organizations pay attention and ask serious questions about the impact of change in their worlds. The TOTS framework also offers tools to help people grab hold of the spear and ultimately change the game in their favour.
The book, “Tip of the Spear: Disruption Strategy in a Human World”, will explore the full scope of this extraordinary time in the human species. From the introduction: “Our use of the technologies we have invented are now poised on a blade’s edge: Either we figure out how to level the playing field in the areas of Governance, Finance, and Education, or we use these extraordinary technologies to create further concentrations of wealth and increased inequality. We can either use our newly connected planet to have real conversations or we let it devolve into a rabble at the gate.”
