Digital Leaders

It is about understanding how specific technologies interact with people, and setting aspirations, creating culture and building capability.

Successful digital leaders challenge obsolete organizational ways and give teams the space to be disruptive and creative. Successful digital leaders also work in partnership with business and tech entrepreneurs to define and solve the most important issues.

IDEAS

Digital Literacy

Most CEOs think their businesses are being disrupted by digital business models and that they lack the right skills, leaders, or operating structures to adapt.

Being from an older generation, current CEOs are having to learn basic technology and digital marketing methods later in life, which is trickier than growing up immersed in it and puts them at risk of quickly falling behind their younger peers without continuous learning.

Question The Foundation

Most businesses don’t need to own its IT infrastructure because the cost of access has plummeted to the point it is often economically irresponsible to do so. The new digital leader points to the higher level of service and lower costs achieved through external partnerships.

You should be embracing cloud infrastructure and getting out of facility management.
