My 15th wedding anniversary is fast approaching. Looking back on that decade-and-a-half, fond memories come to mind. And, so do some stressful ones. For instance, in our first month of marriage, we had a wedding, moved to a new home in a new state, and started new jobs. When I found myself having trouble sleeping at night, I took a stress test and scored off the charts. Yikes! That was a lot of change at once—change that would make or break both me and my marriage. 15 years later, I can say that “pressure cooker” situation matured me and solidified my marriage. In a similar way, smart companies and organizations who recognize the importance of digital at the C-level are rapidly maturing their mobile, social, and content efforts at the same time. That’s a lot of change to lead at once. And, instead of two people, an enterprise has thousands around the globe.
