Innovation is critical for an organisation if it wants to be successful. But innovation can also lead to more questions than actions such as, ‘where to start?’ and ‘how should work be implemented?’ However there is no need to worry because in Digital Transformation, Herbert answers these questions. She covers the end-to-end execution of digital transformation from leadership-level strategy, to on-the-ground team implementation. Herbert also argues that being true to digital transformation only needs to happen once because, at its core, it means becoming more adaptive to change itself. The book also includes insight from experts from organisations such as the World Wildlife Fund, Morgan Stanley and Royal Caribbean Cruises.

Pitching an idea comes down to the act of trying to get someone to agree to join you. But we constantly undermine the role of the decision maker. Decisions, after all, are made by people and people have agendas. Understanding this is critical to business success and in The Hidden Agenda, Allen helps the reader grasp this. Allen’s approach is about creating a connection that assures a mutual win by analysing the desire of the decision maker and by creating a story around it. The Hidden Agenda is full of stories and examples and written in an entertaining way to help the reader ‘win at business’.

There are always stories about CEOs and world leaders claiming how they have sacrificed sleep in order to get to where they are today. However, a lack of sleep is dangerous because it can give rise to illnesses such as depression. In business, a lack of sleep can also have an effect on decision-making, communication skills, creativity, and innovation. The Business of Sleep highlights the effects of a lack of sleep, but also tells the reader what positive steps can be taken. Vicki Culpin draws on research and interviews with notable CEOs to offer a guide to how sleep works, the consequences of poor sleep and the practical ways of mitigating against, and reducing the impact of, compromised sleep in organisational environments. This book is essential to make sure that sleep, or the lack of it, doesn’t affect your career.
