Digital disruption is the biggest challenge that businesses are facing today. But where there is risk, there is opportunity. New technologies allow you to think big. At the same time, you need to think practical. Make Disruption Work shows you what digital disruption entails and how to ride the wave. The book is focused on evidence, not opinion, and offers real-world examples of companies that underwent digital disruption and how they now bank extremely healthy digital sales. Disruption need not be a threat: it's a power, and it's in your hands.
