“When digital transformation is done right, it’s like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, but when done wrong, all you have is a really fast caterpillar.” George Westerman (Principal Research Scientist; MIT Sloan Initiative on the Digital Economy)
Business models are, in short, the mechanism by which firms create value for their customers. The disruption of a business model takes place by changing the logic of value creation. Either by 1) creating the same value for customers at lower costs or by 2) creating higher or competely new customer benefits. So by this logic, what is the business model of HR? 
We tend to forget that our business model changes in the context of the digital transformation. It’s not HR that’s digitally transformed…the world is undergoing digital transformation and HR is part of this process.
1) People management has value for employees by creating great and engaging work experiences. So its business model changes, when the nature of work changes. The key question is: How will work be any different in the future?
2) People management creates value for business leaders by securing their talent needs in pursuit of their business strategy. So, its business model changes, when the nature of the corporate strategy changes. The key question is: How will corporate strategies be any different in the future?
This is why the 6th issues of || NERD WORDS for HR || features talks, articles, and resources about disruption and innovation. Disruption is an essential part of innovation (Schumpeter, 1934). We as people managers want to innovate, but hate to disrupt our current processes. As always, I include my very own implications for the future of people management.
