Artificial intelligence, blockchain, demands for social responsibility and sustainability… Disrupt or be disrupted! Business leaders, cities and consumers increasingly find themselves at the mercy of disruptors that cast doubt on the stability of all firms, industries and economies. However, disruption may create also value in aggregate, but how can we ensure that we are the ones creating value for sustainability?
