Review

"This is not simply a book for digital-only companies, but rather a book for all companies who want to learn to amplify revenue figures via digital channels." -- 800 CEO READ

ADVANCE PRAISE for Leading Digital

Pete Blackshaw, Global Head of Digital and Social Media, Nestlé--
"Successful transformation of your organization to digital doesn't just happen--you need to lead it. Leading Digital shows the key elements and processes that have made Digital Masters out of companies around the globe, in many different industries, not just high-tech. A must-read."

Michael Tushman, professor, Harvard Business School; coauthor, Winning Through Innovation--
"The days when senior executives could delegate technology issues to their technology people are over. Digital leadership capability is essential to thriving in a world of fast-changing technologies. Westerman, Bonnet, and McAfee provide a clear and readable guidebook to help any leader or manager play an effective role in turning technology challenges into transformation opportunities, both now and in the future."

Joe Tucci, Chairman and CEO, EMC Corp.--
"To stay relevant in this new, always-connected digital universe, businesses in virtually every industry are reinventing their business models for unprecedented customer access, interaction, speed, and scale. Leading Digital shows how transformative companies are navigating this disruptive era successfully--and why others are falling behind."

Pierre Pringuet, Vice Chairman of the Board and CEO, Pernod Ricard--
"Leading Digital provides comprehensive, fact-based insights into how multinational companies can leverage digital technology to transform their businesses' performance. In this book, the authors provide not only the inspiration, but also the practical guidance required for CEOs to successfully navigate this complex transformation."

Erik Brynjolfsson, professor, MIT Sloan School; Director, MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy; and coauthor, The Second Machine Age--
"Technologies--whether based on stone, steel, or software--are tools. They deliver results only when wielded effectively. Westerman, Bonnet, and McAfee's careful and insightful research reveals the patterns common to the most effective leaders of the digital revolution and shows how they are using digital technologies to deliver impressive results."

Charlene Li, founder and CEO, Altimeter Group; author, Open Leadership; and coauthor, Groundswell--
"Digital is no longer the responsibility of a few tech-savvy executives--in the age of digital customers, it needs to be the responsibility of every leader in the organization. Leading Digital provides a blueprint for digital transformation."
