Mindset, not tools. A phantom is moving in Europe: disruption. Our world has become uncertain. It’s not only in the world of business that innovative start-ups are calling into question conventional business models (and thus the existence of established companies); in the social and societal realm, too, we are experiencing serious upheavals, the transition of our old world to a new one. This is about much more than simply the digitalisation of various areas of our lives: it’s about the foundations of our economic and social life itself. Future thinker und business philosopher Dr. Bernhard von Mutius calls for nothing less than a completely new way of thinking: disruptive thinking. This is thinking aimed at developing new reserves of adaptability and gaining creative freedom. We must integrate discontinuities into our thinking, be constantly mindful of what we do not know and make contradictions productive. This will give rise to a creative revolution that encompasses all areas of life and makes them fit for the future.
