Description

Maximum innovation happens at the edge of chaos: the messy, risky, and uncertain threshold between randomness and structure. Operating there is uncomfortable but it’s where organizations “invent the future.” EDGE is a set of fast, iterative, adaptive, lightweight, and value-driven tools to achieve digital transformation, and EDGE: Value-Driven Digital Transformation is your guide to using this operating model for innovation.

EDGE embraces an adaptive mindset in the face of market uncertainty, a visible, value-centered portfolio approach that encourages continual value linkages from vision to detailed initiatives, incremental funding that shifts as strategies evolve, collaborative decision-making, and better risk mitigation. This guide shows leaders how to use the breakthrough EDGE approach to go beyond incremental improvement in a world of exponential opportunities.

  • Build an organization that adapts fast enough to thrive
  • Clear away unnecessary governance processes, obsolete “command and control” leadership approaches, and slow budgeting/planning cycles
  • Improve collaboration when major, fast-paced responses are necessary
  • Continually optimize investment allocation and monitoring based on your vision and goals

  • Focus on outcomes, not output: make enterprise agile value-driven, faster, and more adaptive
  • Learn better ways to invest, work together, and accelerate successful change
  • By a team of pioneering experts at ThoughtWorks, EDGE’s creators – including world-renowned agile expert Jim Highsmith
  • Gain convenient access to downloads, updates, and/or corrections as they become available by registering your product online
Master EDGE: the missing link in leadership and portfolio management that helps you successfully execute your digital transformation
  • Focus on outcomes, not output: make enterprise agile value-driven, faster, and more adaptive
  • Learn better ways to invest, work together, and accelerate successful change
  • By a team of pioneering experts at ThoughtWorks, EDGE’s creators — including world-renowned agile expert Jim Highsmith
