Digital and Technology
Becoming truly digital is difficult. Not just the exterior of a business has to be digital, but also the inside: strategy, IT-systems and technology, culture, communication, processes, HR-policy.

Innovation isn’t born in an isolated department. Every fibre of the organization must change and move from doing digital to being digital.
Whether technology and the internet are a threat to the business or a catalyst for change is a pressing concern for boards and CEOs. Great leaders build great leadership teams and, in turn, great employee teams. Businesses with great leaders have a distinctive edge for surviving and thriving in this fast-paced environment.
