In this series, professionals predict the ideas and trends that will shape 2016. Read the posts here, then write your own (use #BigIdeas2016 in your piece).
One of the Big Ideas for 2016 is likely to be a continuation of a major trend that has been around for a number of years now. That is businesses and industries being transformed by disruptive new competitors.
What is likely to be new about the upcoming year, though, is that more industries that assumed they were safe from disruption, because the services they delivered were more complex, will find themselves under increased threat from new entrants to their markets who deliver products and services more conveniently and less expensively.
