I recently had the privilege of attending Book Expo America, the world’s largest book convention. In attendance were thousands of booksellers, publishers, authors, distributors, and suppliers. There were panels with CEO’s discussing the future of the industry. There were technical sessions, keynotes, and workshops. And there was an incredible reality-distortion field that seemed to have descended everywhere.
It was fascinating to observe people repeating the same things to each other, wishfully hoping that through repetition, that the industry could be as they wanted it to be.
These are the dynamics and challenges in the publishing industry, but each industry and organization has its own conventional wisdom and sacred cows. What are yours?
Blindly accepting the conventional wisdom, resisting change, and ignoring disruptive technologies and players is easier when you are doing it with others who have a stake in the status quo. This week, move beyond the reality distortion field, and identify the “wisdom” that everyone seems to take for granted. And if necessary, challenge the status quo from an outsider’s perspective. (There is probably a book about this…)
