Executive Summary

Today's business environment is characterized by the presence of powerful disruptive forces operating on a global scale. As the current crisis in the financial markets demonstrated, these "Storms of change" are often difficult to foresee, yet can have a devastating effect. This paper looks in more detail at the most powerful of these external forces, all of them global disruptors in one form or another. It identifies nine in particular, and divides them into three groups: global resource disruptors, global policy disruptors and global market disruptors. The paper goes on to examine whether companies perceive these disruptors as a threat or an opportunity, and what they are doing (or planning to do) to minimize their negative impact or amplify their positive potential.
