If You Don’t Cannibalize Yourself, Someone Else Will

Steve Jobs famously said “If you don’t cannibalize yourself, someone else will.”

Most businesses protect existing products, services, and processes and fear change. Such fear comes at a great price. Remember Kodak? Xerox? Blockbuster? Book stores?

The music industry is changing before our eyes. The publishing industry is collapsing under its own weight and fear.The advertising industry is faced with a simple choice: innovate or die.

No industry is immune – no company is safe.

Evolve or die.
