REVIEW

A very opportune and timely intervention to craft a future that, without this book, would struggle to make sense and value of the ever-increasing levels of automation in which data will be the basis for all decisions, including those that are mission critical, such as business. The holistic treatment offered in this book that meticulously addresses the merger of data with advanced analytics is exceptional. A highly recommended read!

Professor Washington Yotto Ochieng, FREng 

We live in an era of ubiquitous automation, yet we lack a seamless understanding of the potential of data, the long-term value of AI and the role of human agency. Uniquely, this book provides this much-needed overview. The topics considered are purposefully broad, acknowledging that true understanding comes from seeing the interconnections between domains – from robotic process automation to neuroscience and from data ethics to the theory of optimization. Ever present is the backdrop of real business value and how this may be unlocked – crucial if we are to see clearly the economics of the new digital era. The authors provide a detailed view of the current state of the art, as well as a prescient commentary regarding the future of AI and the part we must play to create an environment of augmented human intelligence. This book is a tour de force, Hofstader-esque in its breadth, built upon the belief that deeper insight comes from a broad fusion of ideas.

Stephen Roberts, FREng, FIET, RAEng/Man Group Professor of Machine Learning

High Frequency Change

We are dizzy trying to keep up with the constant flood of newness across every aspect of our lives. And it's clear that some of our biggest companies are facing similar challenges. Each week another big brand name fails. Why is this?

Change is like a wave: it has both amplitude and frequency. The last century was about change of great amplitude, big waves washing over the whole society. But this century is about high frequency change: rapid, smaller waves, each powerful enough to disrupt an industry. This book explains how we can understand high frequency change, what drives it, and how we must respond by changing the way we run our organisations - and our lives.

The Business of Getting Business

The internet is shrinking the world; local brick and mortar businesses are finding more competition than ever before, primarily from ‘out of towners’ who conduct their business online.

The Business of Getting Business will educate and lead business owners to a different way of generating and converting business opportunities using digital marketing concepts and processes. It provides need-to-know information about digital marketing in easy-to-understand terms, so any business owner will walk away with a true understanding of what they need to do online to make their business succeed.

Disruption Denial

We live in a world of constant change and disruption caused mainly by new technology. Yet, in business, there is widespread apathy, paralysis and confusion in many established companies in face of the obvious scope, scale, reach and pace of disruptive change. Why? Because Denial is the natural default response, given how executives’ brains function and how they are trained.
This important book examines why companies seem paralysed in the headlights of onrushing digital and other disruption. In analysing and understanding this tendency towards denial in companies, the author is then able to guide executives to begin seeing a new perspective to coping with the transformation challenge that faces them. Full of insightful case studies and lessons gained from the author’s work with leading companies, this is a hugely timely book when virtually all companies and executives must deal with the threat of disruptive change.

How do you build a brand in a time of information overload where the media are so fragmented that you can barely get the attention of your audience?

Wild Knowledge: Outthink the Revolution

Today, we live and do business in a world where society gathers knowledge faster than it gathers wisdom. It is a world of continuous revolution and change. Those who manage to find, structure and exploit the power of "Wild Knowledge" - ie, the untamed data, learnings and experiences that flourish in our lives and minds - will come out the winners. In combination, we need to develop our ability to understand and judge which aspects of that knowledge are applicable to business and life in general. This is the so-called "Vicious Wisdom" which will force you to unlearn, to choose an approach of unthinking, in order to reach a deeper understanding, meaning and reason in your quest to find new and different solutions. This book, written by a leading futurist/philosopher, presents a powerful and radical approach to thinking about and solving our future lives and businesses.

Fightback

Digitization is the biggest disruption for business as usual at any major corporation. Trusted mindsets and existing business models are collapsing, corporations are struggling to react to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by risking too little transformation too slowly – and your industry is up next! It’s time to wake up, act and really shape digital change. We need to take up responsibility for digitization and Europe might well be the center stage for this change.
Fightback delivers a stunning and convincing blueprint that will enable business leaders to use the digital economy to their advantage by leveraging three powerful, but little understood, strategic tools – platform business models, digital ventures and the special skills of tech entrepreneurs. Based on a sophisticated analysis, the book is a hands-on playbook for corporate renewal in an age of digitization and makes a convincing case for Europe leading the way in changing minds and business around the world.
