Dumbness is nothing but the absence of smartness. Companies become complacent after achieving a set level of performance. In the due course of time, they forget to set new benchmarks and are ultimately left behind. As the world around you continues to become smart, you are at risk of becoming a dumb monkey if you don’t evolve.
Dumb monkey syndrome is the inability of organizations to evolve their business models with time and failure to embrace smarter ways.
