ABOUT THE BOOK

book-cover

“ITS NOT THE STRONGEST OF THE SPECIES THAT SURVIVES, NOR THE MOST INTELLIGENT, IT IS THE ONE THAT IS THE MOST ADAPTABLE TO CHANGE”
– CHARLES DARWIN

The famous quote from Charles Darwin seems apt for the Disruptive Digital Era, moving beyond the realms of physical limitations, opening new frontiers, and changing the fundamentals along the way.

As a result, we are seeing the creation of highly Agile, Fearless and Hyper-Connected Digital Enterprise, willing to take on the world with unknowns at a rate never seen before.

In today`s era of volatility, there is no other way but to re-invent. The only sustainable advantage, you can have over other is Agility, that`s it. Because nothing else is sustainable, everything else you create, somebody else will replicate.

Jeff Bezos

CEO of Amazon

In some ways, incumbents have a lot of benefits over new players, over start-ups. They have customers, they have great data, they often have a brand. They have financial resources, which a start-up may not have. The question is, can all of those capabilities and assets be deployed in a way that allows you to defend against new attackers as digital disrupts your industry?
