A Message From Mike J. Walker
You Are A Digital Pioneer.
Your mission is to observe, distill, and translate this new digital world around you as if you’ve never seen it before. Be curious, be humble, and most importantly, be comfortable being uncomfortable.
Through my journey of advising hundreds of Fortune 500 CEOs, CIOs, and CTOs around the globe I recognized a wave of innovation brought forward by digital ecosystems. This trend is enabling endless and dynamic connections that are occurring as a direct result of digital technologies like IoT, blockchain, 5G, and artificial intelligence. Like Apple, Alibaba, Tencent, Amazon, Uber, AirBnB, and many others, you too have the opportunity to join these innovators to create digital ecosystems to challenge business as we know it.
Rewire! was written to alleviate the confusion, fear, and anxiety that many senior leaders in leading organizations around the world have. My hope is that this book will provide you the frameworks, tools, and approaches that will help your organization thrive in the digital economy.
