Praise for Social Business by Design

"Social Business by Design is a book about turning your business into a social one not one that spams Twitter, but actually bakes the benefits of the social revolution right into the fabric of your organization. A big idea, and an urgent one."
Seth Godin, author, Poke the Box

"If you are serious about developing a social business, then keep this book close at hand. Dion Hinchcliffe and Peter Kim bring years of wisdom and experience, paid in blood and sweat, to the pages of Social Business by Design so that you don′t have to."
Charlene Li, author, Open Leadership; founder, Altimeter Group

"Social Business by Design has a clear, simple, straightforward message that puts people in the center of a new way of thinking and working."
Tony Hsieh, author, Delivering Happiness; CEO, Zappos.com, Inc.

"Social Business by Design goes beyond the surface level of social media to help executives across departments think like social anthropologists who can deeply integrate the latest insights, trends, and data to help their businesses thrive in the 21st century. Kim and Hinchcliffe have helped companies from the inside and know their subject matter well."
Scott Monty, global digital communications, Ford Motor Company

"The debate about whether social business is worthwhile is over, thankfully. Now we can move on to the much more important work of successfully putting in place new technology–enabled ways of working, marketing, and innovating. With this invaluable book, Hinchcliffe and Kim offer guidance springing from their deep experience on how to do just this."
Andrew McAfee, principal research scientist, MIT; author, Enterprise 2.0

"New technology is driving a fundamental power shift in business globally, representing a significant challenge for business. But that same technology also provides unparalleled opportunity if we learn how to harness it. This compelling book outlines the basic principles we will all need to transform challenges into opportunities."
John Hagel, coauthor, The Power of Pull; co–chairman, The Center for the Edge
