COP­ING WITH DIG­I­TAL TRANS­FOR­MA­TION

NZ Business - - SNIPPETS -

ALL BUSI­NESSES are fac­ing mas­sive dis­rup­tion from cur­rent and im­mi­nent tech­nolo­gies. Mike Pol­lok’s new book The Busi­ness of Change (ISBN: 978 04734 24886) ex­plores the very real dig­i­tal threats and op­por­tu­ni­ties fac­ing the coun­try and aims to help Kiwi or­gan­i­sa­tions cope with, and take ad­van­tage of, the new re­al­i­ties of busi­ness.

The Busi­ness of Change re­views many of th­ese key tech­nolo­gies im­pact­ing on Kiwi busi­nesses – from Ar­ti­fi­cial Intelligence (AI) to Ro­bot­ics, from the In­ter­net of Things (IoT) to 3D Print­ing to Con­nected Ve­hi­cles.

Mike’s in­cluded scores of ex­am­ples and case stud­ies from New Zealand and else­where, and the book ex­plores step-by-step how or­gan­i­sa­tions of any size can rein­vent them­selves to pre­pare for dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion, and avoid get­ting left be­hind.

Christo­pher Luxon, CEO of Air New Zealand, de­scribes the book as “a prac­ti­cal guide that will help busi­ness lead­ers re-imag­ine how they un­lock the ben­e­fits of tech­no­log­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion while man­ag­ing the im­pact of change.” Vic Crone, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Cal­laghan In­no­va­tion, ex­plains how The

Busi­ness of Change “brings to­gether in­sights, ad­vice and ex­am­ples from top thinkers and lead­ing busi­nesses in New Zealand and abroad.

“And it out­lines how to sur­mount com­mon hur­dles to dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion and thrive amid ac­cel­er­at­ing change.”
