21 Jewels of Digital is an interesting piece of work. Not only is the final outcome, the book, an interesting read, the year long journey of research led discovery was equally interesting. With nominations from 300 plus organizations, shortlisting 21 shining jewels was not an easy task. Enormous efforts were put in terms of collecting information through a structured 18 page questionnaire, jury inputs, extensive one on one personal interviews with CXOs and CIOs and writing the case studies. The research was conceived, designed and conducted by Dr. Kapil Dev Singh.
In 21 Jewels of Digital the authors, Dr. Kapil Dev Singh et.al., showcase how some of the truly transformative Indian enterprises-spanning across the industry spectrum-have defied the myth of being averse to risk and have taken the required bold steps to join the global bandwagon. These stories collectively present a picture where one can say that Indian enterprises also possess the wherewithal of creating a fully digitally enabled business. It’s about working on it with the right leadership, right technology, right culture and right mindset.
21 Jewels of Digital should work as a guide for thousands of aspiring organizations, who want to thrive in the emerging global digital economy.
The book was launched at a glittering event in New Delhi where the 21 Jewels of Digital were also felicitated. It is first of its kind documentation of inspiring stories of digital led transformation.
