TOUCH: Five Factors to Growing and Leading a Human Organization
For better or worse, digital business has fundamentally changed how organizations hire staff, market their services, and connect with stakeholders.

TOUCH provides leaders of all types of organizations — private to public sector, community to enterprise business — with real-world, proven solutions.
