Ctrl Alt Delete: Reboot Your Business. Reboot Your Life. Your Future Depends On It.

by Mitch Joel

Grand Central Publishing | May 21, 2013 | Hardcover

Ctrl Alt Delete: Reboot Your Business. Reboot Your Life. Your Future Depends On It. is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The DNA of business has changed. Forever. You can blame technology, smartphones, social media, online shopping and everything else, but nothingchanges this reality: we are in a moment of business purgatory.

So, what are you going to do about it?

Mitch Joel, one of the world's leading experts in new media, warns that the time has come to CTRL ALT DELETE. To reboot and to start re-building your business model. If you don't, Joel warns, not only will your company begin to slide backwards, but you may find yourself unemployable within five years.

That's a very strong warning, but in his new book, CTRL ALT DELETE, Joel explains the convergence of five key movements that have changed business forever. The movements have already taken place, but few businesses have acted on them. He outlines what you need to know to adapt right now. He also points to the seven triggers that will help you take advantage of these game-changing factors to keep you employable as this new world of business unfolds.

Along the way, Joel introduces his novel concept of "squiggle" which explains how you can learn to adapt your personal approach to your career, as new technology becomes the norm.

In short, this is not a book about "change management" but rather a book about "changing both you AND your business model."

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reboot your life! Ctrl Alt Delete made me wonder if I would still be employable in 5 years. It confirmed my feeling that I was in a stagnant position. I have since quit my job and co-founded a business with my friend. No regrets. Great read if you feel you want to reboot your life.

Rated out of 5 by from As I began to read 'Ctrl Alt Delete' I didn't realise how significant the title really was - I'm a Mac guy after-all. Obviously after seeing Mitch Joel speak during a recent marketing presentation, I expected some paradigm challenging concepts, insightful observations, and a relaxed thoughtful delivery. During both the first few pages and on completion of the book, I was struck with a sense of urgency - reminding me of how I felt when I first saw "An Inconvenient Truth" in 2006. To me, Mitch's basic pitch was "Marketing via direct relationships (social media) is already happening now people - and it's not going away!". Ctrl Alt Delete is an easy to read Marketing "How to" book, embracing modern digital marketing and a personal motivator, reminding readers that they must continue to be entrepreneurs of their own careers. Some great take aways that stuck in my mind included; keeping a "digital first" mindset, that my "squiggly" career path was not a negative thing, and to embrace a new way of thinking/functioning in your work space. A compelling read that must affect the way you think and function in your current (or future) work space. It's not too late!
