Strategy Alternatives for a World of Technology Driven Change

As technology races ahead it makes entire business models obsolete. When we review the recent past we all know the stories of Kodak, Blockbuster, Borders and the Yellow Pages Group, and we think we understand why they failed. When we look forward however, most of us envision a future much like the present where incumbents thrive. This assumption is almost always wrong.

What’s an employee, corporation or institution to do? Paul works with new start-ups that aim to disrupt existing business models, with established businesses that hope to defend against them, and with policy makers as they strive to understand and respond to these changes.

Paul is a frequent speaker to boards of directors and corporate strategy groups as well as at industry and public policy conferences. He is widely published and an ongoing contributor to a number of publications including Huffington Post and the Globe and Mail.

In addition to his consulting, writing and speaking Paul is a venture advisor at MaRS Innovation Centre, an adjunct professor of technology strategy at the York University Schulich School of Business and an Executive in Residence at technology services firm T4G Limited.

Paul studied Engineering and Economics at the undergraduate level and holds an MBA from the Kellogg Executive MBA program (Kellogg Schulich).
