“The most important work for today’s CIO is to bring digital capabilities to the enterprise. From Agile to DevOps to Big Data, Sacolick breaks the daunting concept of ‘digital’ into manageable pieces and offers a pragmatic guide toward transformation."— Martha Heller, author of Be the Business: CIOs in the New Era of IT

“If you and your IT leadership team are struggling with where to begin on your digital transformation journey, Isaac Sacolick’s Driving Digital is a good place to start. With Isaac’s years of experience of being an IT practitioner and now an industry expert, I believe you will find Driving Digital a must-have handbook for your journey.” — Ramón F. Baez, former HP Global CIO

“Sacolick is a well-respected technology leader known for business acumen, innovation, and mastery of social media. His excellent book, Driving Digital, is valuable reading for CTOs, CIOs, and heads of Product. He teaches digital transformation, agile product development, and product strategy in this coherent and practical guide.” — Rajiv Pant, technology executive, currently CTO and Chief Product Officer at The Wall Street Journal and former CTO of The New York Times

“The battleground for business transformation has never been as well-defined as it is today, nor have the stakes been higher. Most literature on the topic gets mired down in ‘technology’ or stays so far above the fray that it’s ‘mom and apple pie.’ Isaac’s approach is practical and tactical with real-life lessons that can supplement any executive’s playbook with a highly positive impact for business.”— Anthony Juliano, CTO, General Partner, Landmark Ventures

"I hired Isaac at two different businesses to be a transformational CIO and deliver new products. Driving Digital captures his best practices in product development, agile management, and innovation that were instrumental to our business and cultural turnaround”— Keith Fox, Phaidon CEO, former President of McGraw Hill Construction and BusinessWeek

“A great read that is very relevant to CIOs and CTOs. Sacolick is spot-on with identifying the key issues in transformation and with digital disruption. This is a must read for any business-minded CIO and anyone driving transformative capabilities.”— Bart Stanco, Executive Partner, Gartner
