Transformation Requires Much More Than Technology

From The Intro: “Given the rate of change that we have experienced and will continue to see, it’s been a challenge trying to stay on top of everything that’s taking place. As we’ll see, it will require much more than simply obtaining the latest technology, plugging it in, and sitting back to watch reinvention take place. From top to bottom, organizations will be compelled to change entire mindsets, attitudes, and assumptions about how they operate, how they can grow, and even about the very reason for their existence.

Change, as driven by technology, is as much an adjustment of mindset as it is a new set of tools that everyone must learn how to use. This book is geared to addressing that unprecedented journey. And when I use the word journey, I mean to emphasize that reinvention never has any sort of fixed end point or conclusion. Rather, it’s an ongoing pilgrimage—one characterized not only by obstacles to be met and overcome but also by fresh opportunities that are continually presented at each step along the journey.

But it can also be equally perilous. As you’ll also learn, the road to transformation is complex, and several organizations and companies have failed to grasp the scope and import of what reinvention really encapsulates. I believe this book will help you and your organization work toward realizing a far more rewarding and meaningful outcome.”
