Before you go for the transformation or modernization would you like to understand the conditions and practices necessary for your transformation to thrive? This book talks about the changes all over, and the companies who are taking advantage of the changes to flourish in the new economy. Understand the dynamic complexities triggered by the cataclysmic changes and apply some mental models to unleash the changes that will give your enterprise a digital competitive advantage.
Written by an agile enthusiast and technology leader of multiple companies with more than 20 years of experience, this book reveals:
● How the recent pandemic has raised the bar for business agility, and why it is important to understand the changes happening all around us.
● How digital businesses approach the crisis with a different mindset and arm decision-makers with several tools to cope with critical situations.
● How digital technologies equip decision-makers and employees to determine the trade-offs and draw on the collective wisdom to achieve the best outcomes.
● How a detailed array of mental models will help to achieve the desired transformation.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The first in the series of my books. This book talks about the changes happening all around us and the companies who are taking advantage of those changes to flourish in the new economy. This book is about agility, which I believe is more important for the success of any transformation. Pease read the book, and apply some mental models to unleash changes that will give your enterprise a digital competitive advantage.
This book is about a new abnormal that currently pervades business and society as convulsions such as catastrophic events, technological upheavals, and wild swings in business optimism or business optimism rock them. Only the agile and alert will survive in the evolving situation. They face moving targets as their goals as the ground before them continuously shifts. Yet, information technology provides data and visibility into our environment that should stimulate creativity for rapid problem-solving aided by digital tools.
Complex made simple with digital
Deep-sea oil drilling and production platforms epitomize complexity, uncertainty, and vulnerability to calamities. They have exposure to the turbulence of rough weather during storms. Failures in their systems culminate in explosions, such as of the BP oil platform in 2010, with catastrophic damage to the surrounding environment.
Oil platforms are labyrinths with many of their subsystems and components invisible to the human eye; their inspection is inevitably imperfect, and the pre-emptive correction of faults in them daunting.
Digital twins, however, greatly simplify the control of complex systems such as oil platforms. Shell is one of the energy companies that has adopted an advanced version of digital twin used for product development, remote monitoring of operations, and decision-making simulations.
Each of the processes and systems of an oil platform has virtual images that collectively help visualize it in its entirety, including workflows end-to-end. They are integrated with the Internet of Things (IoT) and receive data on every component's state-of-health in real-time, fed into models to predict breakdowns and find opportunities for pre-emptive maintenance.
At the stage of designing platforms, engineers attempt to resolve the issues with them. Simulations with data help spot lurking vulnerabilities that could come to the surface during times of stress. In subsequent iterations of oil platforms, engineers consider the historical operational experience to make them sturdier. Digital Twins have built-in remote controls for operation managers to make course corrections when they detect anomalies in the data.
Digital transformation is a foundational technology for complex agile systems. Data and analytics create situational awareness that prepares organizations to take action before they are struck by disasters. Understanding the vulnerabilities of their systems helps them fortify them against weather external shocks and catastrophic events. Remote controls allow you to react before events overtake you.
Rude awakenings are painful
It helps if you have a roadmap with a clear intent to adopt state-of-art technologies. Too many companies bask in the glories of their past achievements. They often have a rude awakening as a tsunami of disruptions hits them; it is not an uncommon occurrence. Many companies presume to be agile or at least strive to achieve some level of agility level but frequently remain unaware, unprepared, or ill-equipped. …
