"Digital Master is a series of guidebooks (28 + books) to perceive the multi-faceted impact digital is making to the businesses and society, help forward-thinking organizations navigate through the journey in a systematic way, and avoid “rogue digital.” It perceives the emergent trends of digital leadership, provides advice on how to run a digital organization to unleash its full potential and improve agility, maturity, and provide insight about Change Management. It also instructs the digital workforce on how to shape a game-changing digital mindset and build the right set of digital capabilities to compete for the future.

3 Hopefully, good assumptions are based on multidimensional thinking and knowledge-based perception and forecasting.

4 In highly innovative organizations, people are encouraged to challenge old assumptions, embrace different perspectives, update knowledge, and apply different ways to solve problems.

5 Do not always follow the conventional wisdom or preconceived opinions, be an independent and critical thinker without being excessively critical. Blind faith = blind assumptions = unconscious biases.

6 With the rapid growth of information and fast-paced changes, it’s important to challenge conventional wisdom and eliminate pre-conceptual assumptions or unconscious bias. Because when the assumption is wrong, the conclusion will also go wrong.

7 You have to challenge automatic assumptions or the existing business best practices because they are perhaps outdated already.

8 It is important to leverage Systems Thinking which helps make more logical “assumptions,” discover interconnectivity and interdependence.

9 The assumption that there is a single cause to a "problem" in a complex adaptive system such as today’s business is unhelpful. There are often multiple and inter-related dynamics behind complex problems and you need to be looking for patterns rather than isolating causes for solving them effectively.
