    • Pelco Surveillance in trouble
    • Christian Sandström holds a PhD from ChalmersUniversity of Technology, Sweden. He writes and speaksabout disruptive innovation and technological change.
    • Pelco – one of the largest manufacturers of analogue CCTV cameras recently announced that around 4 percent of its workforce will be laid off.
    • The company had another minor layoff in late 2008.
    • The industry is currently experiencing a shift from analogue to digital internet-based video surveillance.
    • The shift means that a company like Pelco has to acquire plenty of new skills in order to sustain is position.
    • With an analogue tradition, however, it is difficult toremain competitive when the competence base of the industry is shifting.
    • Pelco is therefore facing the challenge oftransforming the company, while at the same time having to coordinate layoffs and streamline its existing business.
    • Shifts to digital technology tend to be fast and violent.
    • New products quickly lose their value.
    • So if Pelco manages to renew its business…
    • … paradise is still not waiting for the company.
    • On the contrary…
    • … competition will be tougher than ever before.
    • Acquiring new skills is not easy for an established firm, and it’s even more difficult if it has already been wounded.
    • Is Pelco heading for the graveyard?
    • Is Pelco heading for the graveyard? We’ll see.
