Digital-Era Leadership

January 08, 2019 10:00 AM ET [10:00] (New York), 03:00 PM UTC [15:00] | (1 hr) | Time Zone Converter

The working world continues its metamorphosis as organizations increasingly leverage technology to modernize their business strategies. As the pace of change intensifies, many companies just cannot compete; 50 percent of the 2006 Fortune 500 companies no longer exist. Technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are projected to affect billions of jobs over the next decade. These trends represent both a threat and an opportunity.

Organizations with digitally savvy leaders (the pioneers) are outperforming those organizations with less digitally capable leaders (the laggards). As our working world becomes increasingly digital, that performance gap will only grow.
