The transformative paradigms that we had prefigured in the Social Business Manifesto [OpenKnowledge annexed to HBR of June 2012] not only actually emerged and spread, but are currently experiencing an acceleration in many exponential and disruptive ways. Organizations and markets are living an unprecedented era of digital and organizational disruption, accelerated by the pressure of models and cultures of collaborative networks that we had glimpsed and anticipated (from the sharing economy to the internet of things, from the exponential organizations to the use of social big data). A "collaborative disruption" - as we have defined it (between people and people, between people and things, between things and things) - is now reshaping, in depth, how to co-create value, build organizations and relationships and, consequently, how we do business in the Twenty-First Century. We are facing a pace of acceleration - as we said - that needs to be addressed with new advanced operational and conceptual perspectives.
