  • Dynamic Leadership: A Responsive and Responsible Approach

    The need to create responsive and responsible leadership is a hallmark for success in digital transformation and jump starting growth inside organizations. Dynamic leadership describes a model where leaders follow a set of immutable traits and balance foundational attributes of leadership. This new framework takes into account a multi-dimensional approach and addresses the challenges existing leadership models often neglect. The global call for responsive and responsible leadership will require a new way to approach the timeless topic of leadership. Instead of taking a classical binary or rigid approach, learn the five immutable core traits and develop a balance of 14 foundational attributes as a guide to successful and sustainable dynamic leadership.

  • The Shift From Chief Digital Officers To Digitally Enabled CXO's

    The existing leadership structure in most organizations is ill-equipped to drive the change required for dominating digital disruption. Consequently, the emergence of the chief digital officer (CDO) is essential for the new age of digital business.

    Though the current debate often centers on whether the CIO or CMO will win out or whether chief digital officers may arise from an expanded role for the CIO, we see these arguments as short-sighted. As with any other massive transformation, the skill sets required for digital will be infused throughout the executive ranks and the organization’s DNA. The pathway forward will involve a multidisciplinary approach. However, the skills behind digital business transformation will require chief digital officers or those tasked with digital.

    Join R "Ray" Wang (@rwang0), head of Silicon Valley-based Constellation Research and author of the Harvard Business Review Press book, Disrupting Digital Business, as he shows how the path forward from CDO to Digital CXO's will take place over the next 3 years.

  • The Right To Choose To Be Disconnected: An International Human Right For The Digital Age

    In this increasingly digital and connected world, no person nor object will be left disconnected. Yet, humanity faces the biggest human rights abuse - the loss of privacy. What will it take to keep the right to choose to be disconnected a human right and what will you do to defend this freedom.

  • Disrupting Digital Business: The Post Sales, On Demand, Attention Economy Is Here

    We’re standing at the dawn of a digital business revolution, but we barely realize it. As with the beginning of every revolution, those in the midst of it can feel it, sense it, and realize that something big is happening. Yet it’s hard to quantify the shift. The data isn’t clear. From how we interact with each other to how we engage with organizations, the shift is right in front of us. However, organizations usually react to change by denying, delaying, and disparaging — a key reason why 52 percent of the Fortune 500 have been merged, acquired, gone bankrupt, or fallen off the list since 2000.

    Digital business disruption is no longer an option—it’s a necessity. Social, organizational, and technology shifts require a new way of thinking about business, one that leverages a digital DNA to deliver experiences and outcomes, and to transition from selling products to keeping brand promises. Learn how digital transformation allows you to use digital to disrupt instead of become one of the disrupted

It’s part of a shift from transactional systems to engagement systems.
