A Black Swan Lays A Golden Egg

Black Swan Technology Consulting is founded on the principle that Black Swanstrategic events can offer opportunities when managed and viewed with #addimagination.

A Black Swan event – “First, it is an outlier, as it lies outside the realm of regular expectations because nothing in the past can convincingly point to its possibility. Second, it carries an extreme impact…. Third, in spite of its outlier status, human nature makes us concoct explanations for its occurrence after the fact, making it explainable and predictable.” – Nassim Taleb

“In the world of finance, the only black swans are the history that investors have not read.” – William Bernstein
The emergence of an era we typically refer to as the Digital Economy affords us opportunities to differentiate ourselves as individuals as well as corporately, with the associated benefits of this differentiation as a reward. Conversely, the velocity at which it progresses and makes traditional experiences almost unpalatable creates risks that have already made individual skills and organisations offerings redundant.

Additional risks and the potential for Black Swan events are increased by the aforementioned velocity and the expectations of changing consumer expectations against the promise of the Digital Economy.
Such strategic events, and in more extreme occurrences of Black Swan events, are an opportunity for differentiation and re-invention of offerings to our customers and employees. We could say that we need to @addimagination to the Black Swan to turn it into the Golden Goose that lays the Golden Egg.

To do this we need to execute on skills development, build a re imagined portfolio of offerings and platform invention.
