News & Opinion: A new inBubbleWrap giveaway!

By: Sally Haldorson @ 2:39 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

This week we are giving away 20 copies of The Velocity Manifesto: Harnessing Technology, Vision, and Culture to Future-Proof Your Organization by Scott Klososky.

This new book by Scott Klososky is perfect for leaders who are curious and committed, and are willing to dive into future, not just dip their toes in. And I mean that literally, this book is a deep and wide pool of information and inspiration that ranges from the practical to the prophetic.

Klososky (whose experience is as wide-ranging as his book's content) opens the book with this aggressive statement: "Many of you will lose your leadership position in five years or less unless you embrace the velocity manifesto." Obviously the next question for every reader who takes this warning to heart will be, Just what is the velocity manifesto? Klososky replies: "You want the pithy version? Keep pace or go home." (We live this reality in the rapidly changing book business, that's for sure.)

Then he lays it all out:

"You will learn concepts, processes, and leadership skills that will enable you to increase the velocity of your organization and thrive in today's technology-driven environment. In these pages, I will discuss everything from your company's digital intrastructure to your work-at-home policy and show you how to take immediate action to improve your rate of success. So hang on tight."

The Velocity Manifesto will ultimately help you keep your eye on the prize, the real prize of building a "future-proof" business, and avoid being distracted by all the glittery distractions that new technology and new media bombard us with.
