A global marketing-innovation visionary reveals the high cost of an overreliance on data and shows leaders how they can restore the soul of their businesses by reclaiming the human creativity, insight, and relationships essential to competing and winning in the new economy.
Businesses great and small, from old-fashioned bricks-and-mortars to cutting-edge startups, are moving into uncharted territory, as they determine how to transition from an analog past to a digital future. But here's a startling and often unacknowledged truth: The promise of digital transformation can only be realized when we find a way to balance it with the promise of people.
Named by TIME magazine as a top five marketing innovator, Rishad Tobaccowala draws on research and interviews, as well as his thirty-plus years of experience as a digital pioneer, business operator, and thought leader, to describe how digilog companies--ones where digital tools and analog people are integrated expertly--develop a hybrid consciousness and learn to be proactive when they see warning signs that human traits are being subordinated to digital factors.
Restoring the Soul of Business provides practical tools and techniques that every organization can and should implement, and challenges readers to move forward with the kind of balance that catalyzes transformation and produces one great success after another. Readers will:

- Gain skills to become an expert in connections critical to growth and success, including the connection between being creative and using technology, between succeeding today and thriving tomorrow, and between leveraging networks and creating new ideas and approaches.
