Going Digital: What It Takes for Smoother Transformations by Lyndsey Jones and Balvinder Singh Powar (FT Publishing)
In Going Digital, Lyndsey Jones and Balvinder Singh Powar cut through the technical jargon and buzzwords associated with Digital Transformation to provide a concise and accessible guide to AI, data, diversity, handling crises and more.
Both experts in the field of digital transformation and management theory, their book focuses on what humans can do that computers cannot, particularly in terms of team leadership, and provides real-world examples of the human dynamics behind digital successes including Zoom, CNN and BlackRock.
Inspiring us with an openness to transformation in our businesses and presenting helpful problem-solving advice, Going Digital encourages us to be the best digital leaders we can be and avoid drowning in data. By maximising the human element, the writers prepare us to harness the true value of information and avoid common leadership faux-pars in the process.
Lyndsey Jones’ experience as a strategic media consultant, and driving force behind the Financial Times’ digital transformation, coupled with professor Balvinder Singh Powar’s professional and academic authority on Innovation, leadership and virtual hybrid teams, offer the perfect marriage to help even non-technically minded CEOs understand how they can successfully implement a digital transformation.
