“The board needs to ask is what it is the customer needs and do we have the right business model to meet those needs. Disruption isn’t scary. Ultimately, technology doesn’t win the day. Sure it can certainly harness power if used properly, but if your customers don’t get their needs met better, then it’s still just a piece of tech.”
