Transform your organization by making silos a thing of the past

In Boundless, two leaders in transformation and customer success deliver an inspiring and exciting new approach to succeeding in an increasingly decentralized and digital-first world. In the book, you'll learn how to demolish organizational silos once and for all, allowing resources to flow across networks, ecosystems, and communities. The authors explain the seven principles underlying their unique and effective "Boundless" paradigm: connection, integration, decentralization, mobility, continuity, autonomy, and shared success.

Walking you through the blueprint for transformative, resilient business success, Boundless also offers:
* Strategies for mapping the Boundless principles to key technological advances, including digital platforms, blockchain, AI, robotics, cloud computing, and more
* Ways to achieve the operational, organizational, and technological shifts necessary to succeed in an entirely transformed world
* Tools for combatting the natural tendency of employees to accumulate and protect resources within company silos

An invaluable resource for managers, executives, directors, and other business leaders, Boundless will also earn a place in the libraries of founders, entrepreneurs, and consultants who seek to create an enduring competitive advantage for themselves or their clients.
