In the first section, we examine the drivers of digital transformation and we explore the evidence on how successful companies make good strategic decisions in the rapidly changing digital environment. In the second section, we examine how to understand the various ways that data can become assets and weapons and we look at examples from companies that have developed successful strategies for managing their data assets. In the third section we explore the concept of analytics, with a specific focus on the behavioral management issues and opportunities associated with people analytics. In the fourth section, we discuss how to implement digital tools in ways that create fundamental business change and we examine the ways that organizational culture and collaboration are changing in the digital economy.
