HMG Strategy President and CEO Hunter Muller Signs Deal to Author His 6th Executive Leadership Strategy Book for Wiley

WESTPORT, CT – September 12, 2018 -- Hunter Muller, President and CEO of HMG Strategy, has partnered with Wiley, the global research and education company, to publish a new book, Future State 2025, Muller’s sixth book on technology leadership and global enterprise strategy.

“I’m incredibly proud of my long-term collaborative relationship with Wiley and I’m delighted to be working with the Wiley team on my sixth and most exciting book,” Muller said.

The new book is “a thoroughly researched executive leadership manifesto on the technologies and leadership strategies that are reshaping the 21st century enterprise through continuous innovation and relentless self-disruption,” Muller explained.

Specifically, the book will cover the technologies and trends that are fundamentally transforming modern business, creating new markets and delivering tangible value. Those technologies and trends include:

  • Customer/User Experience (including Design Thinking, Rapid Prototyping, Development, Testing, Deployment, Innovation and Improvement)
  • Cloud Strategy (including Public, Private and Hybrid)
  • Artificial Intelligence (including Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Neural Nets, Natural Language Processing and Cognitive Computing)
  • Advanced Cyber Security (including Continuous Monitoring, War Games and Proactive Threat Hunting)
  • Competing for Talent (including Recruitment, Hiring, Training, Retention and Incentives)
  • Automation and Robotics (including Design, Integration, Control and Optimization)
  • Virtual Reality (including Augmented Reality and 3D Gaming)
  • Autonomous Transportation and Logistics (including Cars, Trucks, Vans, Shipping, Heavy Rail, Light Rail and Drones)
  • Resiliency (including Predictive Maintenance, Disaster Recovery and Operational Readiness)
  • Smart Cities (including IoT, Ambient Computing, Continuous Surveillance, Facial Recognition, Voice Analysis, Emotional State Recognition and Privacy)

    “The new book, Future State 2025, will be a must-read for all leaders and executives responsible for making critical investment decisions about new and emerging technologies,” Muller said. “The new book will serve as a practical roadmap to success for transformational organizations as they prepare for a turbulent future.”

    Future State 2025: An Executive Leadership Manifesto on Technologies and Companies Reshaping the Enterprise Through Continuous Innovation and Relentless Self-Disruption will be available in bookstores and through online retailers in June 2019.

    “History is merciless,” said Muller. “Yesterday’s winners are today’s losers. Since its inception in 1928, the list of companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average has changed 51 times. Which side of the fence are you on? Have you done everything you can possibly do to prepare your organization for success? This new book will help you make the right choices,” Muller added.
