Digital transformation is critical. But winning in today's world requires more than digitisation. It requires understanding that the nature of competitive advantage has shifted—and that being digital is not enough. It’s time to move beyond digital.
Pulling from years of in-depth research, the authors take readers inside twelve companies to reveal how they have reimagined their models and achieved monumental transformation that goes further than incremental digital initiatives. For each of these companies, seven common elements emerged that serve as a roadmap for how other leaders can transform their companies for success in a world beyond digital.
The success of any transformation effort depends on whether and how leaders engage their culture. Culture, however, is different from other business topics: it is implicit rather than explicit, emotional rather than rational — that’s what makes it so hard to work with, but that’s also what makes it so powerful. Bestselling author Jon Katzenbach and coauthors James Thomas and Gretchen Anderson, have written a practical guide to working with culture and tapping into a source of catalytic change within your organization.
Very few organizations manage their costs for sustainable success. They spend their money on the wrong things or they cut the wrong things for the wrong reasons, ultimately leaving them weaker and unfit to compete. Instead, organizations need to think about their costs strategically, as investments that will fuel their growth, so they put their money where their strategy is. Fit for Growth is a guide for senior executives and middle managers on how to align their company's costs and organization with their strategy so they can grow, create value, and sustainably outperform competitors.
