Fundamentally, the corporate board’s responsibilities include taking control of the softer issues such as strategic thinking of GRC, making good policy, setting risk appetite, etc....

Interdisciplinary Digital management is fundamentally an iterative cycle to design, develop, scale and optimize business competency.The digital business today is not just working within the industry, but permeating a cross-ecosystem which is dynamic, continuous and interactive.

Irrelevant, Inconsistent, Incoherent A viable digital organization can deliver impressive business outcomes and improve its performance by taking continuous digital practices to keep things relevant, consistent, coherent, improve manageability and develop business competencies.It is a continuously changing world with hyper-connected and interdependent “VUCA” new normal.

Urgent “Delegate”: The decisions should be made for the whole team. The remedy is to question why it is urgent and dismantle that. Unfortunately, Urgent/Unimportant tasks are often political."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.”

Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking about the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify diverse voices and deepen digital footprints, and it's the way to harness your innovative spirit.
