Emerging Trend #4 | Disruption

  1. 1. Disruption Emerging Trends
  2. 2. 1 What you need to know about disruption What impacts for established players? Some weak signals within the construction industry
  3. 3. What you need to know about disruption
  4. 4. Disruption today: a buzzword - 3 Newspapers tell stories of "disruptive presidents", of startups that "aim to disrupt the shower sector" or others that want to "disrupt unemployment". The term is so omnipresent that it becomes hard to grasp its true meaning. Along with disruption, a brand new lexicon has appeared: “uberisation”, “disintermediation”, “commoditization”, etc. The word "disruption" and its derivatives are everywhere.
  5. 5. The fear of being disrupted affects all industries. The common saying about disruption is that “it is only a matter of time before your industry will be attacked: no one will be spared.” C-levels try to keep up with the frantic pace of innovation as they are all afraid to witness a quick and brutal fall of their existing activities. Uber and Airbnb are two great examples of major shifts of value that can occur in only a few years, and no established firm wants to be the next Kodak. One priority for incumbents : fight back against this “new form of barbary” and change the perception of them as dinosaurs sitting there, waiting for a comet to hit. 4 Disruption is generally perceived as an unpredictable, rapid and brutal phenomenon. Disruption today: industry leaders are all afraid of it - In 2015, the French accelerator The Family launched a conference cycle called “Barbarians are attacking!”. Like during the “Barbarian Invasions” of the 5th century, the very survival of the dominant players is threatened by unknown newcomers that do not play by the established rules.
  6. 6. The destabilization of established firms has become permanent. Main reasons are globalization, the frantic pace of technological progress and the fact that it’s now touching all activities. Established business rules are now changing all the time: today's disruptors may be tomorrow's disrupted. 5 The risk of disruption is accelerating. As a result, disruption is not a fad nor a trend, but a new permanent risk - Lifespans of S&P500 firms continue to shrink
  7. 7. What does disruption exactly mean ?
  8. 8. The genesis of the word - The word “disruption” has made part of the French dictionary since the end of the 19th century. It means “break” or “fracture”. 7 The Cambridge Dictionary business definition conveys the idea of completely changing the way things are done.
  9. 9. The creation of a concept - According to Jean-Marie Dru, the disruption methodology has three parts: 8 “Disruption is a dynamic methodology focused on creation” Jean-Marie Dru, co-founder and chairman since 2008 of TBWA. Identify cultural conventions around a brand on a specific market. Find a disruptive strategy to challenge existing conventions. Define a new vision. “We have to draw a fine line between what should be changed and what should not be changed. And this is what Disruption, as a methodology, is all about.” The purpose of this methodology is to free the brand from existing conventions on the market and to help it grow by building a new and engaging vision. Successful disruptions do not simply give an additional market share, but rather an additional market share on tomorrow’s market.

  10. 10. Clayton Christensen put under the spotlight the word ‘disruption’ with a new definition - 9 “Disruptive innovation describes a process by which a product or a service takes root initially in simple application at the bottom of a market and then moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors.”
  11. 11. Christensen’s disruption theory highlights a very specific situation - Incumbents focus on their most profitable and demanding customers and pay less attention to less-demanding customers. The disruptor seizes the opportunity to provide those low-end customers with a “good enough” product. For new-markets, disruptors create the demand and turn non-customers into customers. 10 In Christensen’s disruption theory, disruptive innovations always originate in low-end or new-markets areas. Mini-mills disrupted the steel industry From the 1970s to the 1990s, innovative mini-mills overtook much bigger steel companies. Starting by doing rebar at lower cost, they progressively moved up the value chain to more profitable segments, each time with larger incumbents pulling out to concentrate on their most valuable business lines.

  12. 12. Don’t be trapped by the ‘Disruption Dogma’ - Leaders are obsessed with the question : Is it disruptive innovation or merely a sustaining one? They should ask themselves “Are we thinking big enough ?” If we stuck to Clayton Christensen's strict definition, companies like Tesla or Uber would not be considered as “disruptive”. However, their value propositions and businesses have indisputably shaken up consumer habits and established markets. The rapid pace of technological innovation alongside with globalisation makes it really hard to keep set-in-stone rules to define disruption. The nature of the phenomenon is constantly changing over time. 11 When following a too restrictive academic concept leads to strategic mistakes When the first iPhone was released in 2007, Clayton Christensen argued that, according to its disruption theory, the iPhone was “a sustaining technology relative to Nokia” and “the probability of success [would] be limited”.
  13. 13. What to remember from the disruption concept? - 12 A game-changing perturbation Disruption is a process by which a product, service or solution changes the rules in an already established market. In the end, the traditional value chain that is vital to an incumbent firm is cut, re- engineered or made obsolete.
  14. 14. A “new” word in the wake of an old phenomenon - The disruption concept is somehow based on the substitution of one economic model by another. In history, countless phases of “disruptions” can be identified: agricultural revolutions of the 17th and 18th centuries or the industrial revolution in the 19th century. Every time, the starting point is a better answer to people's needs. 13 In the beginning of the 20th century, Schumpeter invented the concept of “creative destruction” explaining why some innovations such as the wheel or Gutenberg’s printing press were the triggers of more profound economic changes. These innovations are the visible outcomes of long-term and elusive mutations. At the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, Dick Fosbury changed the sport of high jump forever. He defied conventions by going over the bar backwards and set a new Olympic record. Fosbury already used this technique in 1963 and other athletes were experiencing it at the same time, but for most people there was only the Mexico jump.
  15. 15. 5 important characteristics of disruption
  16. 16. Disruptors very often tackle major issues - 15 Major issues require out-of-the-box answers For customers, one big problem is to get rid of waiting time at supermarket checkout No waiting line anymore in Amazon Go supermarkets Disruptor’s answer “Monkey first” mindest Credits: Photos from Le Parisien and The Verge
  17. 17. 16 All disruptions start with customers: they answer the question of how to better meet their needs whether it is jobs they want to fulfill or frustrations they want to get rid of. Disruptors mainly adopt a “jobs-to-be-done” approach - Christensen’s Milkshake example Clayton Christensen gave the example of a fast food chain interested in improving the quality of their milkshakes and boost morning sales. They discovered that people were buying milkshakes during their morning commute to get a tidy and copious breakfast. As a result, milkshakes can easily be replaced by any other easily eatable breakfast foods like bagels or bananas. Jobs-to-be-done can combine different attributes Functional Social Emotional “I need to commute from home to work in the fastest possible way ” “I want to connect with my relatives during this trip” “I want to feel safe and different from other people during this trip” Credits: Icon made by Norbert Kucsera from Noun Project
  18. 18. 17 Signs of disruption can be measured Companies facing disruption generally have more time to fight back than they think… - Debunking the myth of the comet hitting the dinosaur Disruption is not a straight line An idea is not worth much, execution is the key to disruption It took more than a decade for Amazon to meaningfully disrupt physical bookshops, and more generally, traditional retail Dozens of websites before Airbnb tried to monetize the same idea. For Airbnb itself, it took more than 2 years to get real business traction Since 2010, SpaceX gradually won commercial deals to launch satellites. 7 years later, the firm became leader both in terms of tonnage shipped and number of launches.

  19. 19. 18 … and they can use a whole range of different strategies - Ongoing disruption does not have to be taken for granted Between 2009 and 2015, the number of independent booksellers in the US surprisingly increased by 35 percent. Harvard Professor Ryan Raffaelli puts forward 3 main reasons : - Strong connection with local community - Focus on curation to provide a more personal customer experience - Turning into convening intellectual centers and host reading groups, book signings, game nights or children’s story times In order to withstand Airbnb, AccorHotels group has pursued a very proactive innovation and digital strategy : - Multiple acquisitions focus on the luxury segment : Onefinestay, Travel Keys, Travelchic, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts … - Launch of new innovative concepts : Flying Nest, a mobile, adaptable and sustainable livable containers, or Joe&Joe, the new chain for young travelers Arianespace is resisting well on the geostationary orbit satellites segment (36.000km), the best orbit for large telecom satellites. Ariane 5 launched eight satellites into this orbit in 2018, as many as SpaceX. If we look at the total mass of satellites placed in this geostationary orbit: 42.4 tonnes for SpaceX, compared to 36.9 tonnes for Arianespace, only a short advance for the US firm.

  20. 20. 19 Well-known “disruptors” are often just the tip of the iceberg - Very often, so-called “disruptors” are only the spearhead of a broader and deeper ongoing revolution. “The impact that Tesla will have is fairly small in and of itself. It will change people’s perception perhaps, but it will not in and of itself change the world. But if large numbers of people are choosing to buy the Model 3, […] then that’s what will prompt car companies to invest real money into electric vehicle programs of their own, and indirectly, by spurring competition, Tesla can be the catalyst for a multi-order of magnitude shift of the entire industry towards electric.” Elon Musk, Tesla founder and CEO Winner or not of the electric car race, Tesla has already changed the future of car and made firms within an entire ecosystem substantially reconsider the way they were doing business.

  21. 21. What impacts for established players?
  22. 22. Let’s start with a few practical examples!
  23. 23. 22
  24. 24. 23 Tesla: a pragmatic mission - Context: Our driving style has not changed in a century. We have kept an oil engine and it is only in the 2010’s that the first hybrid engines appeared. The automotive industry is being singled out as responsible for a large part of the environmental damage and for the depletion of fossil energy resources. Tesla is able to bring on board a whole network of actors thanks to its vision: Share of their vision through multiple communication channels to maximize reach and create high expectations Tesla turns customers into believers, which allows reduction of marketing expenses. It also enables smart crowdfunding strategy to fund the first car productions. Tesla invests in its long-term vision rather than immediate margin. Investors are confident, they value the company as a technological one rather than an automaker. This vision attracts the best employees willing to work hard to change the world. Tesla first targets rich and early adopter population and proves that electric vehicles can be both powerful and sexy. “Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy”. Tesla Mission Statement With such an ambitious vision, Tesla clearly demonstrates that they are not only attacking the automotive market but also the energy market as a whole.

  25. 25. 24 Tesla’s responses to customers’ needs - Tesla activates four different levers to create a better value proposition. Indeed, Elon Musk’s company identified many pain points that prevented people to switch for an electric car. Quality Price Access Simplicity Almost no electric car offer is appealing or well-designed Cars are an asset that depreciate over time. Having a petrol car is expensive in terms of maintenance and fuel. No efficient infrastructure to reload electric cars. Too many different touch points for the users: brand, insurance, garage, etc.User Pain Points Tesla’s solutions Tesla’s Model S performance gets close to petrol ones (540km of battery life, 2.3 seconds for 0-100km/h). Tesla cars get an operating system that update and improve their features and experience over time. Charging a Tesla is much cheaper than filling a tank. The firm allows users to create their own electric energy (with Solar Roof and domestic batteries). Tesla builds its own Supercharger network to allow customers to easily reload their car wherever they are. From car sales to car insurance and maintenance, Tesla integrates the entire customer experience.
  26. 26. A better user experience Key takeaways from the Tesla case - 25 Vertical integration Capture new value through investments across the value chain and deliver a better value proposition. Invest in assets that are highly specialized. E.g. Tesla’s Gigafactory will be the largest factory in the world to ensure battery supply. Lower costs. E.g. Production’s integration has allowed to reduce costs and sale a mass market electric car for $35,000 (Model 3). Ensure quality. E.g. Tesla has control over its entire production and can craft the best components. Gain efficiency. E.g. Integration has enabled Tesla to accelerate information sharing and learning cycles. To better serve customers, an actor can deliver best services to ensure a more user-centric experience. Strengthen your customer access path. E.g. Tesla has a direct sales model through its website and dedicated stores. It replaced the old car dealership system. Desintermediation of other actors in the value chain. E.g. Tesla integrated maintenance and insurance to foster trust with its customers. While a classic car only deteriorates after leaving the factory, Tesla cars can be updated thanks to their OS. Create new assets to make products more convenient for customers. E.g. Tesla built its own Supercharger network instead of waiting for another player to do it.

  28. 28. Airbnb’s beginnings tell us a lot about disruption - 27 In late 2007, Airbnb founders Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia just moved to San Francisco. The two roommates were unemployed and struggled to pay their rent. They noticed that all hotel rooms were booked owing to a big design conference held in town. Travelers had hard time finding a place to stay in a saturated hotel market. In order to “make a few bucks” they had the idea to buy three air mattress and turn their own flat into a “AirBed&Breakfast”. A few months after, the startup launched the same service again for SXSW and only received 2 bookings. Broke and in debt, they launched the website again for the Democratic Convention in Denver. To attract customers they designed and sold limited edition of cereal boxes depicting Obama and McCain. They earned $30,000 thanks to this original marketing strategy and integrated Y Combinator in 2009 where they first got real traction for their Airbnb service. San Francisco is one of the most expensive american city to live in. Housing there is very expensive (poor user experience). The housing offer is not big enough to absorb exceptional demand in SF (market inefficiencies). Disruptors address a user need that is not met. A disruption is not a straight line and won’t happen without foreshadowing. Even after joining Y Combinator in 2009, Airbnb got rejected by numerous investors. Leveraging excess capacities to answer an existing pain point.
  29. 29. 28 Focusing on delivering an amazing user experience for all members of the Airbnb community - Airbnb also activates these four levers in order to provide a convincing answer to multiple issues within the hospitality and tourism sectors. Quality Price Access Simplicity Hotels lacks authenticity for leisure travelers. Brand-name hotels are near business centers where locals work, but rarely sleep or wander around. Housing offer is expensive, especially in crowded cities and for some customer segments like families. Pressure on housing offers (demand>offer) Difficult to compare offers. Second homes stay empty most of the time (unexploited asset). Poor UX from travel agencies and hotel chains Fragmented value chain and multiple intermediaries to organise a trip. User Pain Points Airbnb’s solutions Airbnb allows travelers to live as locals do. Personalised, original and secure experiences for specific users : Experiences, Plus, Beyond, Airbnb for Work.. Increase of trust with SuperGuest and SuperHost program. Airbnb offers cheap prices in comparison to an hotel. Airbnb supports local dweller’ income. Commissions are low for small listed hotels (3% Vs 20% on booking.com). Airbnb made it possible to find a cheap accomodation anywhere in the world. With 4.5m listings it’s more than the 5 top hotel brands combined. Superior UX : book an end-to- end trip in a few clicks Possible to organise all your trip in one single platform : housing, experiences, restaurants … Home insurance included for hosts Airbnb helps hosts to build their own ad.
  30. 30. Who is Airbnb really disrupting ? - 29 Airbnb is valuated at $31 billion and profitable since 2016. The firm generated $100 million profit and $2.6 billion revenue in 2017. Airbnb expects to reach 500 million completed bookings by the end of Q1 2019. Undeniably, the company has captured value on the market. Why traditional hotel chains continue to thrive ? → Supply of hotel rooms is still low whereas international mobility is booming (situation is very variable from one city to another). → Airbnb and hotels seem to serve different markets : casual leisure travel and families Vs regular business travelers. → Hotels are concentrated into urban areas whereas Airbnb’s offer is more scattered among suburbs, so the spatial distribution is different. → Traditional players are quickly adapting their model and diversifying their activities. Airbnb is less competing with hotels for travelers than with locals for space. “Airbnb has shifted the burden of rising prices in crowded downtown areas from travelers to residents—pushing down prices for hotel rooms, while raising rents for city dwellers”. Derek Thompson The Atlantic Numerous countries and cities took strict measures to crack down on Airbnb’s side effects : number of rental days capped, obligation to register with public authorities, pay a tourist licence… Airbnb is not a real substitute for staying in a hotel, it’s more complementary. The disruption is as much for the industry than for the society itself.
  31. 31. Main takeaways from the Airbnb case - 30 Incumbents have a large panel of responses to fight back Airbnb Leveraging direct access to final user to move on adjacent needs E.g: Airbnb Experience, Airbnb Backyard Build and sell directly your own products instead of just aggregating the offer E.g: Airbnb will now start designing and building modular homes through Airbnb Backyard. Classic Christensen disruption example from a low-end market Airbnb, a new player that was off-the- radar, democratised a cheaper housing alternative. The firm is now moving up the value chain (Plus, Beyond). Disruptors’ value proposition is rarely perfectly substitutable Despite Airbnb’s success, hotel chains are going well. Airbnb solved some problems but tend to create new ones in cities. E.g: Pressure on long-term rent - Play on the same ground : Incumbents like Accor launched their own marketplace (failure). - Differentiate: Accor is repositioning on Luxury and Business travelers (acquisition of Onefinestay, Travel Keys and Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts). - Pressure authorities to get Airbnb on equal footing as hotels in terms of taxation and property laws. - Build an ecosystem of partners: Marriott launched its Travel Experience Incubator in 2017. In the same way, Tesla accelerated the switch to electric vehicles, Airbnb profoundly shook up the hospitality and travel business. In the end, Airbnb only operated a partial disruption.
  32. 32. 31 50 shades of disruption…
  33. 33. The Boring Company case - Because of high labor costs, digging a tunnel in the United States is extremely expensive, which makes the construction of infrastructure such as subways or highways very expensive. E.g. Each mile added to the new subway line in New York has cost an outstanding $2.73 billion. 32 User pain points - Alleviate traffic congestion. - Existing transport infrastructures enhance noise and visual pollutions. Technological substitution Unlock new market-defining features thanks to technological innovation. E.g. By making tunnels, The Boring Company aims to bring infrastructure capabilities back to the US. Spark a revolution that is likely to redefine many sectors. E.g. The Boring Company tunnels will only transport electric vehicles, and of course mainly Teslas. Such a technology will also serve Hyperloop projects, easing freight and transportation A high-end market disruption to make technology more affordable. E.g. Musk’s company is attacking a major issue and is progressively designing a much cheaper solution, as Tesla did for electric batteries. Answer to solve these pain points Elon Musk’s vision is to figure out how to reduce the bloated cost of digging a tunnel in the US. The Boring Company aims to reduce tunnel construction costs, and then, connect with the entire Tesla ecosystem. This is the exact type of market inefficiency that investors and hedge fund operators look for.
  34. 34. User pain points High costs and long time construction due to a fragmented supply chain. Answer to solve these pain points? Katerra has the ambition to modernize the multi-trillion dollar global construction industry. Its mission is to optimize every aspect of building design, materials supply, and construction. Vertical integration From designing to assembling and interior decoration, the company integrates all processes to provide faster, cheaper, standardized but customizable buildings: - Buildings are made of modular components manufactured in Katerra factories, the company employs its own architects and designers. - All is linked with a digital platform that allows the establishment of Building Information Modeling (BIM). The BIM helps to plan and trigger the manufacture of all elements, as well as the monitoring of the entire value chain by the project team. The Katerra case - 33 Katerra was founded in 2015, and has raised $1.1 billion USD in venture capital investments of which $835 million USD from Softbank. Credits: Photos from katerra.com
  35. 35. The Arculus GmgH case - 34 User pain points In the era of mass customisation, production lines are not appropriate since they rely on the old industrial model that promotes standardization. Creating a customized product takes more time and costs a lot. Answer to solve these pain points Arculus was founded with the mission to make production systems more efficient and flexible in all industries, implementing the most innovative solutions. For the last 100 years, industry has followed Henry Ford's production line system, building and optimising around it. New processes Starting in AUDI factories, the arculus independent stations ease workers in their daily tasks and increase their productivity. Modular assembly lines allow cars to be carried to different stations by self-driving robots rather than a linear conveyor belt. Such assembly methods can increased productivity up to 30% and reduce error by 20%, with workers working at their own pace. Credits: Photos from arculus.de
  36. 36. The G7 case : How to fight back against Uber ? - A 6-acts response #1 Go back to your customer: new offers (airports, young, shared), effort to propose cheaper fares. #2 New talents at the management board: focus on IT, customer experience and new technologies. #4 Remobilize drivers and engage training programs: trainings on quality and service, special focus on badly-evaluated drivers. #5 Repositioning (premiumisation & hybrid vehicles): costumes, new black cars, new rules for drivers, rebranding (from Taxi G7 to G7), “green mobility”. #6 Digitalization: new app for booking and payment (G7 Connect) revamped IT, revamped embarked connectivity tools. Disruption is not a linear process. Uber was launched in 2011 in France and progressively attacked G7 core activity : G7 sales started to plummet in 2014 and net income has been halved between 2014 and 2016. In 2018, G7 results were on the same levels than the ones “before Uber”. 35 Credits: Photos from Powertrafic, Capital and g7.fr

NON-SCALABLE GATEKEEPERS Industries where gatekeepers rely on a non-scalable model (human, paperwork, low automation) are the most likely to see disruption. INTERMEDIATED & FRAGMENTED VALUE CHAIN Highly fragmented industries and industries with lots of intermediaries are the most likely to see disruption. UNEXPLOITED VALUE Industries with dormant economic actors or under- exploited excess capacities are ripe for disruption.

  42. 42. Managing the “Innovator’s dilemma” - 41 Theorized by Clayton Christensen, the Innovator’s dilemma explains that incumbents and successful companies must make a choice between developing a new market, which jeopardizes its present market; and protecting its existing market, which prevents it from innovating. Incumbents can lose their market leadership in two different ways: While incumbents are well established in their market, they mainly focus on what customers have, give them the product performance they are looking for, but in the end, are hurt by the very technologies their customers led them to ignore. Many incumbents often adopt these new trends but do not modify their products accordingly... until it is too late. This S-curve graph shows why incumbents can take the risk to pivot their business and leverage on new technologies. This means: ● Betting that these new trends will be more adapted to the needs of customers ● Investing in it ● Cannibalizing its core business to prevent possible cannibalization from a new player who would leverage this technology “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” Henry Ford Monitor Credits: Graph from medium.com
  43. 43. The Kodak case study - ● 1976: Kodak accounted for 90% of film sales and 85% of camera sales in the US. The same year, Kodak invented the very first digital camera. ● In the early 1980s, a study commissioned by Kodak’s experts insist on the fact that the digital photography would lead to many changes and developments in their future strategy. ● 1996: Kodak had still a $28 billion market cap and close to 140,000 employees. Kodak concentrated its efforts to film sales and never decided to produce digital cameras. ● 2012: Kodak was forced to file for bankruptcy. While the management of Kodak was a pioneer in the development of technological cornerstones and was also equipped with accurate market analysis, it made the choice to use it for quality improvements of film as they were so deeply involved in the photo film. Unfortunately, it was the wrong choice... 42 Monitor
