Why Companies Sink and How to Reinvent Your Way Out of Any Business Disaster
A mysterious condition is destroying companies and leaving shattered careers in its wake.
That condition is Titanic Syndrome.
|tahy-tan-ik `sin-drom|, noun
A corporate disease in which organizations facing disruption create their own downfall through arrogance, excessive attachment to the past, or an inability to recognize the new and emerging reality.
How many companies are dying, exactly? Well, consider this: in 1955 the original Fortune 500 list featured 500 (dah!) best companies in the world. Today, only 60 of them are still in business. That's a sinking rate of 88%.
You don’t have a choice. Whether you like it or not, in the coming years you and your business will have to face more change and disruption than ever before.
The only choice you have is this: whether you will fight the winds of change, whether will you see them as your enemy in a desperate attempt to hold on to your past - or will you turn them into your competitive advantage. It’s simple.

"One of the things I admire about Nadya and the Chief Reinvention Officer tribe is how so much complexity (out of very serious business science and disruption) is always so flawlessly transformed into easy-to-get-you-thinking story. I just love the simplicity of it!
Please, get yourself to reading now, because everything (and thanks God!) will be miles different from this moment until next month — you, your job, you company, your boss, your spouse. To be able to run fast and stay afloat we have to paddle fast and don't idle in the waters. And, this living book is offering an emergency pack of ideas and tools to help us not drown.
Can't wait for the next issue, reinvented, straight into my Inbox!"
Here’s the deal: Traditional publishing takes 2-3 years and was built on concepts and data developed half-a-decade earlier.
Today’s speed of change does not allow for such a relaxed pace.
In a world where companies need to reinvent every 2-3 years just to survive, a book based on data and ideas that are 5 years old simply won’t do.
We want you to use our diagnostic tool the moment it’s tested and proven - not when it’s too late for you to diagnose and prevent a calamity.
This could spell the difference between your success or failure.
That’s why we’re reinventing what a modern book looks like.
