During the past 50 years, the world of technology and e-commerce has certainly boomed. Trying to adapt new ways of doing business to antiquated sales tax cases was not cutting it. By 2018, U.S. online sales tallied more than a half-trillion dollars and accounted for about 10 percent of all retail sales.
Disruption and the hyper-acceleration of change has shortened cycles in every industry, putting all CEOs under pressure not only to create cultures that are dynamic and nimble enough to evolve quickly, but to be ever more flexible and adaptable themselves.
