Rethink your business for the digital age. Every business begun before the Internet now faces the same challenge: How to transform to compete in a digital economy? Globally recognized digital expert David L. Rogers argues that digital transformation is not about updating your technology but about upgrading your strategic thinking. Based on Rogers's decade of research and teaching at Columbia Business School, and his consulting for businesses around the world, The Digital Transformation Playbook shows how pre-digital-era companies can reinvigorate their game plans and capture the new opportunities of the digital world. Rogers shows why traditional businesses need to rethink their underlying assumptions in five domains of strategy—customers, competition, data, innovation, and value. He reveals how to harness customer networks, platforms, big data, rapid experimentation, and disruptive business models—and how to integrate these into your existing business and organization. Rogers illustrates every strategy in this playbook with real-world case studies, from Google to GE, from Airbnb to the New York Times. With practical frameworks and nine step-by-step planning tools, he distills the lessons of today's greatest digital innovators and makes them usable for businesses at any stage. Many books offer advice for digital start-ups, but The Digital Transformation Playbook is the first complete treatment of how legacy businesses can transform to thrive in the digital age. It is an indispensable guide for executives looking to take their firms to the next stage of profitable growth.

Content is still king–and if you’re a brand marketer, you need to start thinking like a media company, too. Your Brand, The Next Media Company brings together the strategic insights, operational frameworks, and practical approaches for transforming your brand into a highly successful media company. There is a content and media surplus in the marketplace, and there is an attention deficit in the minds of consumers today. Their lives are dynamic and completely unpredictable. They are highly influential and aid their peers down the purchase funnel using organic conversations about the products they care about and the ones they don’t. In order to reach these consumers, brands must create recent, relevant, and game changing content to break through the clutter and successfully change their behavior. Social business pioneer Michael Brito covers every step of the process, including: Understanding the unpredictable nature and dynamic behaviors of the social customer Deploying social business strategies that will help facilitate the change from brand to media company Building a content organization and setting the stage for transformation Creating a real-time command center that will help facilitate reactive and proactive content marketing Creating a centralized editorial team that will drive content strategy, governance, and cross-team collaboration Building the content supply chain (workflows for content ideation, creation, approval, distribution, and integration) Enabling customers and employees (brand journalists) to feed the content engine Developing your content strategy that can be executed across paid, earned, and owned media content Transitioning from “brand messaging” to a highly relevant content narrative Evaluating the content marketing vendors and software platforms vying for your business Along the way, Brito presents multiple case studies from brand leaders worldwide, including RedBull, Oreo, Tesla Motors, Burberry, Sharpie, and Pepsi—delivering specific, actionable, powerfully relevant insights you can act on to begin the transformation from brand to media company.
