The Organisation of Tomorrow presents a new model of doing business and explains how big data analytics, blockchain and artificial intelligence force us to rethink existing business models and develop organisations that will be ready for human-machine interactions. It also asks us to consider the impacts of these Emerging Information Technologies on people and society.

"Mark van Rijmenam has written a superb executive guide to data, blockchain, and AI. The book presents hundreds of concrete examples to explain the actions that business leaders must take to remain relevant in today's dynamic environment.

Although based on technology, this is a business book. The author carefully examines the role of collaboration in creating business change and presents a framework to help any organization become data-driven and digital.

This book is meticulously crafted and researched; It rewards the reader with insight, practical advice, and greater understanding."

Michael Krigsman - Industry Analyst and host of CXOTalk

"In this book, Mark takes us onto an in-depth and exciting journey on how organisations, our economy and society are transforming today. He navigates through the maze of new technologies and rewrites the change formulae for future success based on 4 key ingredients.

In such a reality, the centrally organised managerial capitalist structures are making place for ecosystems that are creating value in a decentralised, self-governed way and where choices are guided by human progress instead of the fear for machine dominance.

A must read for anyone with an ambition to stay relevant and profitable!"

Stephan Janssens – Organizational Transformation & Blockchain Strategist

"Ultimately, we learn from Mark that the future organisation's success in the global arena will be measured in the three dimensions of trust (enabled by blockchain), efficiency (enabled by AI), and effectiveness (enabled by deep insights that are delivered through data from ubiquitous sensors).

The internet of things may just as well be called the internet of insights. The size ofan organisation will no longer be a metric of success. As the number of new emerging technologies continues to grow every year, we can be thankful that the most significant ones are converging into a unified business model and that Mark van Rijmenam has illuminated that model for us through an insightful broad vision of the organisation of tomorrow."

Dr. Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton
