"Once upon a time corporations had predictable revenue with a proven business model.

Until one day startups were entering the market, growing rapidly and eating into market share.

Because of that management adopted customer discovery to find painful problems and created new business models to address emerging markets.

Until finally corporations no longer waited for startups to disrupt them, but instead began to disrupt themselves."
