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.

The fast-moving digital environment has been disorienting for traditional businesses, and many may not even realize their strategies are outdated. If managed correctly, lagging businesses can transition by harnessing the power of the digital age to create new value for customers and outperform their competitors. Drawing on years of experience as an educator, researcher, and consultant, David L. Rogers identifies five key rules—and provides practical, hands-on tools—that will help businesses of all sizes adapt, innovate, and maximize value creation. Rogers’s rules address critical categories for every business: customers, competition, data, innovation, and the value proposition. For each, he presents diverse case studies (from companies such as Apple and Uber to GE and the New York Times), discusses common challenges to adopting the digital approach, and provides companies and business leaders clear, tested steps to implement new practices. Rogers shows that, rather than being “disrupted” by digital business models, any business can learn the rules of today’s leading digital enterprises. This playbook is all business leaders need to create and pursue a digital plan that works.
