Industry transformation comes when technology disrupts an industry so significantly that business models are questioned and goals and processes that were always thought vital to day-to-day business, change. However, transformation is not fully possible without clear and consensus buy-in from industry stakeholders occurs. This includes, but is not limited to, government officials on both Federal and State levels, research analysts, and industry associations.
