“It’s Fallacy to Say That We Can Be Isolated and Still be Successful in a Global Economy That is Interconnected.”

For leaders, creating ecosystems that in turn create success requires a broad level of thinking.

Adam Gordon, Edutainer & SME at ITProTV, says how we manage those close to home involves allowing for the understanding that we’re not going to do everything ourselves.

The time when businesses could operate in isolation has long since passed. In this modern, globally-connected environment, companies may have to be comfortable being uncomfortable with things such as outsourcing and partnerships with entities/governments/people that may or may not share their values.

Adam compares this to when pre-historic man roamed the earth and realized, “‘You know what? We’ve got to partner together to go hunt that big animal over there because we’re not going to eat otherwise.’”
