EDGE: Value-driven digital transformation

Jim Highsmith, Linda Luu & David Robinson

Thriving at the EDGE of chaos


Opportunity is moving faster and more unpredictably than ever before. As a result, organizations are facing a widening gap between fleeting opportunity and their ability to capture it.


Leaders, in and outside of IT, know they need to transform the business using technology to focus on their value to the customer. EDGE is their guide to eliminating friction to close the gap between their capabilities and opportunity. 


It’s about applying an operating model that helps them become holistically agile so that every part of the business — from culture to leadership to tech to product — can adapt and evolve at the speed of change.


EDGE: Value-Driven Digital Transformation is the go-to guide for leaders looking to link strategy to how an organization executes on delivery of value, delighting customers, and business results.

It’s refreshing to read a book that goes beyond the ‘base camp’ of agility. So often we get to Scrum or some framework and then stop. True digital transformation is much more, and this book by Highsmith, Luu, and Robinson captures what every manager needs to know if we want to scale these challenging heights.
