Australia:
Taking Bigger Steps
Are Australia’s best days over?
Or ahead of us?
Australia may be the
envy of the world, but
the country needs to
do more to prepare for
the imminent wave of
technology disruptions.

Since 2014, increasing evidence
points to “Islandisation” as the
most likely scenario for Australia:
• Global trade is falling and protectionism is rising
• Many traditional fiscal and monetary policy instruments
are no longer relevant
• Fringe and populist political movements are on the rise
• Geopolitics has returned
• The international system
is under serious strain
Australia: Taking Bigger Steps
The lucky country
Australia ranks second after
Switzerland on The Economist’s
where-to-be-born index,
offering the best future
to its newly born citizens.
Can Australia maintain
this position?
Australia: Taking Bigger Steps
A formula for
sustained prosperity
Three areas stand out
as critical enablers for
Australian businesses:
• Productivity
• Innovation
• Globalisation

Australia’s position does not appear
strong enough to withstand the

Australia: Taking Bigger Steps
The industrial impact
It is not a question of if an industry will
be disrupted, but rather when it will be
disrupted, how many technologies will
affect it, and to what degree.
Australia: Taking Bigger Steps
No Australian industry is immune to technology disruption

Australia: Taking Bigger Steps
Defensive crouch
Lower risk, lower growth potential
• Double down on traditional core business
• Structurally insulate from imminent disruptions
• Limit or exit international investments
Global offensive
Higher risk, higher growth potential
• Focus and invest in R&D and innovation
• Take risks and embrace disruptions
• Pursue new international opportunities

In the face of future adversity, how will Australian
CEOs and boards respond?
“If we want to change, the change begins with us.”
”If not you, then who? If not now, then when?”
