“Digital-Physical Mashups” by Darrell K. Rigby

I was stuck on a plane, so I read. Been there? I have a subscription to the Harvard Business Review, so I went into a knowledge acquiring bender. An article titled “Digital-Physical Mashups” by Darrell K. Rigby was challenging, insightful, and I want to recommend any online church leader to check it out.

Why? The market research of physical stores dealing with the importance of having an online store is comparable to physical churches dealing with properly leveraging an online church presence. I’m not saying it’s exactly the same, but there are correlations and learnings for online church leaders.

You can read part of the article here, but you will need to purchase the access to see the full post.
