Prof. Jasna Prester, PhD

Description:

Today, every business is a digital business. In every industry, traditional business models and processes are being transformed by the spread of new digital technologies and the rise of disruptive threats. The Digital Age promises a more prosperous and fulfilling life for everyone globally. But that promise is only as good as the capability of leaders at all levels of the organization to lead their units to success in a challenging and uncertain future. Learning to be an excellent digital age leader is a never-ending journey. The goal is to help students immediately apply what they learn in this course. Leading in the Digital Age develops five Skill Sets needed for success in the Digital Age:

1. Leading Beyond the Edge of the leader’s unit, organization, geography, and formal authority, enabled by Digital Age tools, to provide innovative solutions to customers and other stakeholders.

2. Building Deep Trust Relationships: In the Digital Age, trust replaces formal authority as the basis for leadership.

3. Forming and Leading Virtual Teams: The Digital Age relentlessly shrinks time space. Properly formed and led, virtual teams turn this challenge into an advantage over traditional teams.

4. Collaborating and Co-Creating the Future with customers and other stakeholders. Multi Organizational value networks formed from a portfolio of relationships are replacing single-company owned, linear value chains. Leading in this new business model requires a “co-creation mindset.”

5. Learning Dynamically: The only sustainable competitive advantage in the Digital Age is the capability to learn, adapt, implement, and learn as you go, faster and better than your competitors.
