Today's technologies offer unprecedented opportunities to streamline workflows, reduce costs, and deliver products in the multiple formats users demand—print, ebook, online, apps, and the next big thing.

You'll learn how:
•    A modular approach avoids the costs and risks associated with an end-to-end revamp
•    A flexible approach enables faster and more effective process development
•    To implement change that overcomes resistance by making it easier for people to do their jobs
