Learn how to build an organization that can thrive in a world of technological change

Enterprises face an ever-growing gap between opportunities and their ability to exploit them. Technological advances generate opportunities, but enterprises’ capabilities struggle to keep pace.

This is a world that complexity theory describes as the edge of chaos. While it might be tempting to wish for more stability — a return to an earlier era, perhaps — this edge of chaos lends itself to innovation, change, and growth.


In EDGE: Value-Driven Digital Transformation, Jim Highsmith, Linda Luu, and David Robinson explore how you can embrace “the edge” by building organizations that are adaptive and responsive to what might feel like chaos. They explain how, by bridging the gap between digital strategy and execution, you can ensure a culture that combines innovation and resilience to deliver more value to your customers.
