Why this award?

The digital revolution is rapidly impacting organisations and the way they are managed by leaders today and tomorrow. The next years of digital transformation will not be about technology but about people, agility, experimenting and breaking through old patterns. The days of ‘command-and-control’, winner-takes-all leadership are over. With technological change, we experience a deep change in the way we do things, the way we interact and the way we communicate. The leaders of the digital world will need to create an environment for collaboration, where talent is liberated to experiment and share and where diversity is included in the culture of an organisation, liberating innovation and attracting excellent talent.
