Digital disruption won't end anytime soon; the average worker will experience numerous waves of disruption during the course of a career. The COVID pandemic accelerated many of these changes, and will make the coming years more disruptive than in our lifetimes. Many leaders mistakenly believe that they need an entirely different skillset to lead a digitally mature organization or a digitally native generation. Prof. Kane discusses what should and shouldn't change about effective leadership in a digital world. Discover how digital disruption is primarily about people and why effective digital transformation involves changes to organizational dynamics and how work gets done. Learn how managers play an essential role in creating a culture that is more agile, risk tolerant, and experimental.

  • Characteristics of digitally mature companies
  • Barriers to digital transformation and how to overcome them
  • Leadership skills to succeed in a digital workplace
