The phenomenal rise and rise of Pokémon Go has taken the world by a storm, despite being launched in only a handful of countries. This week Brian Roemmele and Faisal Khan discuss how we've entered a new age of what we are calling "Pokemon Speed". How will businesses large and small take advantage of this? How will the incumbents turn their boats to face in the same direction where Pokémon Go is heading?
We discuss how it is imperative to see (literally) what is going on, and this can best be done by a tired and tested theory of Empirical Praxis - by observation! Getting out of the comfort zone and divorcing oneself from the company they work for, go out and see how the trends and patters are taking shape.
In this new era, there is no standing still, for business is done at Pokémon Speed.
