Christopher Surdak points to Campbell's Soup potentially wrong-footing digital disrupters. How does an old school analogue manufacturer, hotel chain, service provider, insurer, bank become a disrupter?

For a start don't just try and improve things- throw away today's customer journey and user experience and design it the way customers demand it now and in the future.

Then, like Campbell's choose the technology partner(s) that will deliver the perfection that customers demand. Bring in expertise from outside who will not be constrained by today's legacy systems and entrenched views of an analogue-centric team. A Chief Digital Officer would be a start.

Surdak makes a compelling and practical case that you need to fully embrace the Digital Holy Trinity.
