In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, digital transformation has become a necessity for organizations looking to stay competitive and thrive in the digital age. Innovative technologies like chatbots and AI are disrupting traditional business models, requiring companies to rethink their strategies and approaches. To successfully drive a digital transformation, organizations need leaders who possess the right skills and mindset to navigate this new terrain.
Digital leaders are catalysts for change within organizations. They have the ability to inspire and motivate teams, foster a culture of innovation, and drive the adoption of digital technologies across the organization. These leaders possess a unique combination of technical expertise, strategic thinking, and strong communication skills.
Nokia and Kodak are two examples of companies that failed to adapt to the digital revolution. Nokia, once a dominant player in the mobile phone industry, struggled to compete with the rise of smartphones and lost significant market share. Kodak, a pioneer in the photography industry, failed to embrace digital photography and ultimately filed for bankruptcy.
These case studies highlight the importance of digital leadership in guiding organizations through digital transformations. Companies that fail to adapt risk becoming obsolete in today's fast-paced, technology-driven world.

The fast-moving, furiously-changing world of exponential digital technologies, seismic social changes, and global existential risks is demanding that every organization innovates with agility whilst still maintaining efficient management and predictable returns. Those that cannot unleash the potential of their people to transform products and processes as times change quickly become obsolete. This is why one S&P company is being replaced every two weeks; and why 50%-75% of the Fortune 500 are predicted to disappear in a decade.
