Momentum for stalled, stuck, and stale industries.


the Disruption Cycle

Disruption. It’s a fact of life in business. If you’re feeling like the ground is continually shifting under your feet, you’re not alone. The business cycle is turning faster than ever, and there’s no sign of it abating.

Over the past fifteen years McKee Wallwork + Co. has conducted research among thousands of companies to better understand what we call “The Disruption Cycle.” We uncovered the most common reasons why companies get derailed, identified early warning signs that indicate trouble may lay ahead, and—most importantly—developed best practice principles for what alert business leaders can do about it.

The wheels of business never stop turning and we have no choice but to roll with them. We do have a choice, however, between being agents of change or victims of it. Understanding the Disruption Cycle--and where your company falls within it--will help keep you in the driver’s seat.
