Simon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners, says that “every single market and every single geography is suffering profound disruption”.

This, he says, is what the findings of the firm’s third iteration of the Disruption Index show. The index is a survey of 3,000 business executives in a few targeted industries and geographies. Freakley says that “the forces of disruption are not unexpected” and that it isn’t the forces themselves that are causing the challenge for businesses, but the intersection of the disruptive forces working together, “turning a rolling sea into a choppy sea”.

Hear the rest of the conversation above in the first episode of our five-part podcast series, Disruption Matters.
