Drawing on data and stories collected since 2012 from more than a thousand enterprises, this MIT CISR research by Peter Weill and Stephanie Woerner has led to a simple but powerful framework and language to help executives think about their competitive environments in the digital era. The findings have been compiled
in a new book—published by Harvard Business Review Press—that helps leaders clarify the path to higher value via straightforward steps and self-assessments.
