EDGE: Value-driven digital transformation
EDGE: Value-driven digital transformation

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.
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.
