--Guy Laurence, President & CEO, Rogers Communications, Inc.

"Digital disruption is real, is happening now, and is fundamentally changing the way organizations will compete in decades to come. There has never been time of greater promise, or greater peril. Those that don't transform now will quickly face mass extinction. The team at the Global Center for Digital Business Transformation are out in front of this mega-trend. Digital Vortex is a must-read for those who are ready to lead the way."
-- Doug Connor, Global Vice President for Digital Transformation, SAP

From value vampires to value vacancies, there's a new world of business strategy that needs to be mastered. Digital Vortex demystifies this next new frontier and provides ample guidance for the digitally unprepared."
--Bill Fischer, co-author, The Idea Hunter: How to Find the Best Ideas and Make Them Happen, and co-creator, DeepDive innovation methodology
