Digital Leadership - the biggest challenge?

Leadership is the key competence of the CIO by definition. That is not new. But HOW to lead is changing. How do we adapt to fluctuating uncertainty? When shall we go slow, when fast? How do we integrate IT and business towards digital? How do we achieve Agility, Resilience, Ambidexterity?

Transparency drives cultural change

Cultural change is an ongoing topic companies nowadays increasingly face. We propose that transparency is a key to achieving the change. How much transparency is needed and how do I achieve it? What other ingredients do I need for success?

From Empowerment to Engagement

Good leaders empower their employees. Good leaders empower their partners. But what is empowerment without engagement? How do I nurture engagement to achieve maximum results?
