Ignore the signs of structural uncertainty at your company’s peril. Always take them seriously!

The world economy will grow by $30 trillion over the next decade – great news for any business!

To make the most of this growth, however, you’ll need to know in which industries to invest and which technologies will dominate the market.

This isn’t easy. Why? Because every industry faces structural uncertainty.

Structural uncertainty arises from external circumstances, and by nature cannot be controlled. For example, internal issues concerning supply or human resources create operational uncertainties, which are easier to spot and prevent. Structural uncertainties, on the other hand, can land even long-established business leaders in trouble.

A technological innovation that turns an industry inside-out is a classic case of structural uncertainty. For example, computer manufacturer Dell was a market leader and enjoyed massive profit margins. That is, until the 2000s when Apple introduced the tablet.

This new technology triggered a drastic drop in demand for personal computers and laptops, Dell’s bread and butter. This structural uncertainty resulted in Dell’s share price plummeting. And Dell never saw it coming!

Though structural uncertainties often take a company by surprise, it is possible to spot them ahead of time. Signals and hints are often right under our noses. The thing is, leaders fail to take them seriously.

This was Nokia’s mistake in the wake of the market introduction of the smartphone, a structural uncertainty about which the company was undoubtedly long aware.

Nokia executives had been researching smartphone technology, and knew that Apple was also filing a series of patents. It was the company’s failure to act on these warning signs that led to it relinquishing its dominant position in the cell phone market.

If you don’t want to become a Dell or a Nokia, you need to learn how to spot uncertainty – and how to act quickly when you do. But what’s the first step? We’ll explore some strategies in the following blinks.
