Embrace the Human Side of Organisational Digital Transformation
Digital Humans: Thriving in an Online World is an insightful, engaging and interdisciplinary discussion of how best to transform your organisation into a nimble, digital enterprise with human beings firmly established at the centre of it. The authors draw on complexity theory, anthropology, history, organisational transformation and behavioural science to demonstrate the characteristics that define successful digital organisations.
You'll discover the importance of focusing on human beings even as you make the shift to digital and learn to understand the importance of our new digital ecosystems. Illuminating case studies and examples of organisations that have successfully made the jump to digital are explored and the book presents new and effective ways to make strategic decisions about your company's future based on our new physical-digital hybrid reality.
A can't-miss blueprint to a market environment and world that's increasingly fast-moving, complex and rewarding, Digital Humans will find a place in the libraries of managers, executives, and business leaders looking for an engaging roadmap to digital transformation that wouldn't have us leave our humanity behind.
