From the Senior Vice President

Have you had your dose of healthy discomfort today?

I’m not talking about the joys of business travel. I’m talking about out-of-your-routine, forced-to-think-differently, not-how-we’ve-done-things discomfort. Pushing past traditions to discover a new realm of possibility.

That was the theme of our Creative Disruption workshop in Boston earlier this month. Our goal was to offer food for thought, and I am pleased to report that there seems to be a healthy appetite for this kind of thinking.

At Celent, we think this will be an approach that insurers and their vendors will have to emphasize if they want to succeed in a crowded marketplace. If you're in the C-suite of your company, this issue is yours to champion. If you're on the front lines, you need to make sure this issue gets airtime with the C-suite.

To help stoke the creative fires, I suggest you do two things today, while you're thinking of them. First, check out the videos we produced for the event. They're each about three minutes long, and we hope they will help jumpstart the conversation around disruption. (Feel free to share these with your colleagues, too!)

Second, register for Celent’s Innovation & Insight Day, which will be held in Boston on January 26. Combining content from our annual CIO roundtable and Model Insurer Events, this high-energy program will give you actionable insights and ideas, along with plenty of networking time. Space is limited, and we expect to sell out, so please register now!

Disruptively yours,

Craig Weber
Senior Vice President
