3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jasper on September 8, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I tried, REALLY tried, to like this book but it's like a bad movie that you think 'has to get better' but never does. I did finish reading the book so I could ethically submit PDU's for reading it but, if not for my PMP recertification, it would have been relegated to shelfware after the first few chapters. The author did obviously invest a large amount of time and effort in this book, with numerous research study references, but it seemed like each idea or topic was included with the hope that one would stick. Also, many of the covered topics appear to be basic business concepts wrapped up as new social networking concepts.

I gave this book two stars since I did find a few couple of interesting ideas to ponder and, in the author's defense, the book may be of more interest to individuals working in non-profit or professional and credentialing organizations. However, from my perspective with twenty plus years experience in various technical and business positions, the key points I walked away with could have been reduced to several PowerPoint slides or, since we're in the age of connected relationships, a few Tweets or Facebook postings.

Format: Hardcover
This books encapsulates 10 ideas that can dramatically change the thinking and leadership skills of those who are faced with the dynamic challenges, and opportunities of the digital world. David Nour is astute in highlighting less about how to tweet or post updates on Facebook, and more about how to dramatically alter your revenue or even business models; from topics such as "iTunify Your Capabilities" to Reinventing Your Board, Failing Intently, and building world-class digital engagement opportunities. I did find some sections difficult to follow, so you can skip a paragraph. But overall, a worthwhile read for me and my global corporate clients. I've been able to execute the strategies to grow my global customer base which is digitally connected.
