Since early 2013, we have been helping companies understand how digital has a potentially disruptive impact on their future. We advise CEO’s from news media, radio and TV, banks, HR, automotive, retailers and many other industries on digital transformation. As international economists, consulting companies and opinion makers are increasingly talking about the importance of digital disruption, we are starting to feel the acceleration in interest in our own market as well. We have debated for a while whether we should publicly share our vision, knowledge and approach, after all, it is our core business as consultants. So why give our expertise away in this book? Well, because keeping knowledge and insights away from a broader audience is an example of how people did business in the past. Sharing information and being open, transparent and collaborative are drivers of transformation that are shaping the business of the future. A future we believe in. THE BOOK IS A STORY OF HOPE AND OPPORTUNITY Of course digital is disruptive. But this book is not just a listing of everything that is being disrupted by the impact of digital. We really believe that most industries still have the time to transform themselves for the future. Digital is creating massive opportunities to develop new products, services and businesses. Understanding how digital is transforming our world and businesses might be intimidating at first, but once you start thinking about how things can be done differently you might just become more optimistic than ever before. IT CONTAINS A METHODOLOGY Digital Transformation Modeling has different dimensions. You start from a strategic framework for businesses to identify and de ne the right opportunities while thinking about digital transformation. Starting from 7 metaphors and over 40 drivers of transformation, our model allows businesses to create different scenario plans to better understand the future. Next we focus on the organisational model that introduces new ideas on how your company can organise itself to reflect the willingness to transform into the new structures, roles and ownerships that you will need to translate that future vision into a reality. All of this should prepare you for an on-going operational reality of digital transformation. THIS IS NOT JUST A MARKETING BOOK For the past few years digital has been pretty disruptive for traditional marketing. The arrival of new types of digital media has forced marketers to think about interactive ways of communication and dialogue with customers. There have been many studies, books and conferences about this evolution. This is not another book in that series. Digital transformation is not just about transforming your marketing approach, it’s about turning your business around to deal with the challenges and new opportunities that digital is bringing to the market. We’re entering a new phase where all internal stakeholders are involved. Digital transformation is a journey for the entire company. It’s no longer about just marketing transformation, it’s about business transformation. This book is a reworked edition for 2016. It contains several new chapters, based on our experiences in the many Digital Transformation workshops we’ve given since the first edition of our book. We want to thank our clients for giving us the opportunity to apply our methodology and our readers from over 35 countries for their feedback.

Become a Digital Master—No Matter What Business You’re In If you think the phrase “going digital” is only relevant for industries like tech, media, and entertainment—think again. In fact, mobile, analytics, social media, sensors, and cloud computing have already fundamentally changed the entire business landscape as we know it—including your industry. The problem is that most accounts of digital in business focus on Silicon Valley stars and tech start-ups. But what about the other 90-plus percent of the economy? In Leading Digital, authors George Westerman, Didier Bonnet, and Andrew McAfee highlight how large companies in traditional industries—from finance to manufacturing to pharmaceuticals—are using digital to gain strategic advantage. They illuminate the principles and practices that lead to successful digital transformation. Based on a study of more than four hundred global firms, including Asian Paints, Burberry, Caesars Entertainment, Codelco, Lloyds Banking Group, Nike, and Pernod Ricard, the book shows what it takes to become a Digital Master. It explains successful transformation in a clear, two-part framework: where to invest in digital capabilities, and how to lead the transformation. Within these parts, you’ll learn: • How to engage better with your customers • How to digitally enhance operations • How to create a digital vision • How to govern your digital activities The book also includes an extensive step-by-step transformation playbook for leaders to follow. Leading Digital is the must-have guide to help your organization survive and thrive in the new, digitally powered, global economy.

One book for the entire journey: How to digitally transform your organization Innovation in the face of major external change is critical for any organization's success, but attempting to do so often leads to more questions than actions: Where do you start? How do you get the right resources? How should work be implemented? What data should you measure? For the first time, these questions are answered in a single book that covers the end-to-end execution of digital transformation – from leadership-level strategy, to on-the-ground team implementation. With the biggest revelation of all, Herbert argues, being that true digital transformation only needs to happen once because, at its core, it means becoming more adaptive to change itself. Featuring the 'how to' of digital transformation devised from successes across every sector, Herbert distils it into five actionable stages. These stages act as a repeatable framework for continual innovation, allowing you to produce results immediately and grow change incrementally across your organization. In Digital Transformation, Herbert draws on her own experiences in leading change and innovation programmes globally, as well as featuring insights from experts and leaders from organizations as diverse as the World Wildlife Fund, Morgan Stanley, Royal Caribbean Cruises, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the Rijksmuseum, the American Cancer Society, The Guardian, Harvard University, and many others.
This book describes how chief information officers (CIOs) can embrace and drive the digital transformation by providing innovative leadership that uses old skills in a novel way. The book explores ways in which new actors and factors will play a key role in this process and how new relations can be created among things, data, and people. In addition, the design of digital organizations and the implementation of digital technologies are carefully examined and it is explained how digital workspaces can be designed, organized, and used. A set of methods is provided for linking new digital tools in order to meet the goals and challenges of building a digital enterprise. The digital economy is disrupting the way of interaction within value chains, creating fresh spaces for competition and novel ecosystems. With the advent of social media networking, mobility, big data and cloud computing, 4.0 manufacturing, etc., we are witnessing the birth of new digital organizations. However, sharing of leadership of this change among different actors can create disorder and inefficiency. Against this background, the future role of the CIO will be crucial.

Digital Transformation at Scale

"This book is for people worrying about their sinking ship. Based on experience, it is a guide for navigating the blockers, buzzwords and bloody-mindedness that doom any analogue organisation trapped into thinking that while the internet has changed the world, it won't change their world. Companies that grew up on the web have changed our expectations of the services we rely on. We demand simplicity, speed and low cost. Organizations founded before the Internet aren't keeping up - despite spending millions on IT, marketing and 'innovation'. This book is a guide to building a digital institution. It explains how a growing band of reformers in businesses and governments around the world have helped their organizations pivot to this new way of working, and what lessons others can learn from their experience. It is based on the authors' experience designing and helping to deliver the UK's Government Digital Service (GDS). The GDS was a new institution made responsible for the digital transformation of government, designing public services for the Internet era. It snipped £4 billion off the government's technology bill, opened up public sector contracts to thousands of new suppliers, and delivered online services so good that citizens chose to use them over the offline alternatives, without a big marketing campaign. Other countries and companies noticed, with the GDS model now being copied around the world."

Remaining competitive in the retail industry of South Africa in the digital age is a major business concern. In the age of „digital natives”, people are well-connected on various digital technology platforms and are digital consumers. Digital technologies offer retail organizations new innovative ways to create value by utilizing digital business strategies, processes, and products. This qualitative research study explores the perception of retail strategy experts and decision-makers toward realignment of IT and business strategies considering digital transformation in South Africa. Based on interviews with seven managers and decision-makers in the retail industry, the study reveals that digital technologies have disrupted traditional ways of doing business. The study proposes eight major recommendations, in which retail traders could innovate their business strategy to enhance value creation beyond traditional approaches to retailing. It provides a good starting point for academic research in a domain that is deficient in theoretical and empirical research on the South Africa retail sector, and offers retailing managers a conceptual model to guide them toward a digital business strategy for transient competitive advantages.
