Select Book Notes

“Leaders increasingly understand that it is how employees use technology to drive outcomes that are permanent and self-correcting, not temporary. Raj, a serial technology entrepreneur, had vision and clarity on this distinction long before others. A world-renowned management consultant, Ram has focused on breaking through complex business environments to help companies grow. This discourse on digital leadership is the best I’ve seen about creating lasting value and outcomes in organizations by looking at things from a business perspective. It’s about leveraging existing systems, data and applications through an accelerated, collaborative and bite-sized process to drive change.”

—Manoj Singh, Chief Operating Officer (retired), Deloitte Global

“In her book The digital leader, Raj and Ram simplify the approach to building new business models and provide leaders with an excellent framework to achieve growth and deliver tangible results. I recommend with confidence their framework and altimetric approach, rooted in empowering people to leverage technology, powered by uniquely competent and talented leaders, to achieve real results. It’s a great approach to focus on increasing outcomes and bottom lines!”

—George Zoghbi, CEO, The Arnott’s Group
