Why Read This Report

Digital innovators embrace new organizational structures. Cross-functional working is a given, but innovators go further, democratizing trust in the outside world in return for speed, inspiration, and access to capabilities they can't, or don't want to, develop internally. They shift capital, intellectual property, and human resource risk to a dynamic ecosystem of partners, and they embrace technology to drive unprecedented efficiency and scale. Sound scary? It is. This report outlines how digital business leaders structure their teams and business units. This report was originally published in December 2017; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy, most recently in February 2019.
