Autodesk Sponsors Independent Report Offering Lessons on How Business Models Should Change in the Next Normal

This post was last updated on March 16, 2021.

If digital transformation has made a roughly five-year leap in the months since Covid, how much should your business plan change?

To help leaders answer that question, Autodesk has commissioned the third in a series of three independent research reports about strategies for business growth in the next normal.

The report, titled “Building a Culture of Business Model Innovation: Five Lessons From a Year of Upheaval,” was written by Susan Etlinger, senior technology analyst at research firm Altimeter and author of the TED talk “What Do We Do With All This Big Data?.” It offers expert advice from global scholars and business leaders about how to build stronger and more innovative businesses, even during disruptive times. This includes lessons learned during the past year, implications for business model innovation, and recommendations to aid leaders in reimagining their business strategy for growth during disruptive times and beyond.

The findings of the report include:

  • What leaders have learned during the pandemic that is informing their business strategies
  • How the pandemic has affected business models in architecture, construction, design and manufacturing, and what opportunities exist to foster resilience and growth in these industries
  • Five pragmatic recommendations to help leaders jump-start their strategic planning efforts
