Disruption is always there, looming before any organisation. Whether it’s planned moments of change, or industry-shifting events beyond the control of any individual it affects. It’s why digital transformation was a hot topic / buzzword of the moment long before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

The dynamics of the majority of markets have been unsettled. Funding has been pulled, redirected or increased – depending on the direction in which you’re looking.
