Building Digital Culture (9780749479657)12th December 2016 - Building Digital Culture: A Practical Guide to Successful Digital Transformation

Why Digital Culture Is Central To Business Success

The digital world has exploded in size and complexity in recent years, with the risk of new disruptions around every corner. Consequently, the average life expectancy of a company has dropped from 47 years to just 10. So how can organisations succeed when the environment they operate in is changing so quickly?

In the new book, Building Digital CultureDaniel Rowles and Thomas Browncombine 30 years of experience in digital developments and marketing to answer that very question, proving that if you don’t create a digital culture, you’ll most likely fail. Addressing key digital decisions such as whether or not you should advertise on Facebook or invest in virtual reality, Rowles and Brown demonstrate how to navigate from being a business that acts digital, to one that truly is digital.

Understanding the core concepts behind digital transformation is essential to succeeding in the changing digital world. However, ‘digital culture’ is not an isolated element of the transformation process; it is the sum of values, behaviours and ‘norms’ within an organization that can prove either crucial or detrimental to its success.

Building Digital Culture empowers readers to understand why businesses need to change, what that change should look like, and how they should go about implementing it. With exclusive insider stories from some of the world’s leading companies, including BMW, Twitter, Deloitte and Bloomberg, this book demonstrates how embracing digital culture has improved business practises and resulted in increased adaptability and productivity overall.
