Strategy in the Digital Age: How to Disrupt or Respond to Disruptors

TOKYO, July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Hundreds of books have been written about strategy, disruption, digital transformation and agility. Yet businesses are being disrupted like never before. Right now there is comprehensive and practical book, Strategy in the Digital Age: How to Disrupt or Respond to Disruptors that demonstrates how to win in the new digital environment where trade wars, Brexit, Fintech, digital platform and health care disruption are the new normal.

The book will be published on August 4, 2019, by BookBaby. The list price is $9.99 for the Kindle version and $33 for the paperback. It can be found on Amazon, B&N and other book retailers across the globe.
