As the Information Age continues to evolve at a rapid rate, businesses are finding it challenging to compete in their marketplace.  New technologies, global markets, demanding customers, disengaged employees and aggressive competitors are placing unprecedented pressure on many companies, who must now rethink the way they do business.  In order to be successful within the current economy, businesses must ensure that the collective efforts of their workforce are aligned with their strategies, goals and principles.  More importantly, companies must transform their business into a Digital Firm (Industrial Economy → Digital Economy).  Where business processes, information, technology and relationships with customers, suppliers and employees are digitally enabled and key corporate assets are managed through digital means.
