The world of 'e' is rewiring the world of old. So concluded Larry Downes' and Chunka Mui's 1998 work, Unleashing the Killer App, which emphasized two points of discomfort for many managers: the imperative for new, expressly digital, strategies, and the need for utilizing creativity amid chaos. Mobile knowledge workers, networking, and accelerating R&D are driving new ways of doing things across broad segments of the economy; look at how we deliver new products and cooperate with the whole range of stakeholders. Customers and competitors, armed with information and empowered by technology, allow no respite to those caught off guard.
