Digital technologies are transforming the way enterprises operate, so it should come as no surprise that the role of the digital leader also is undergoing great change. Barry speaks to Dan about what it takes to be a leader in the digital world, exploring how the modern technology executive needs to be fluent in both business and technology – or, as Dan describes it, be “double-deep.” Dan believes leadership is becoming a shared responsibility, as opposed to being something provided by only a few at the top of a hierarchy. This can be seen in the proliferation of new CXO roles - Chief Digital Officer, Chief Security Officer, Chief Technology officer, to name a few. As the traditional enterprise leadership structure is replaced by a more agile and collaborative team architecture, enterprises are reaping the benefits of the emergence of a new generation of entrepreneurial technology experts who are influenced by ideas from across teams and departments.
Join Barry and Dan as they discuss these issues, along with the top five technology themes that Dan believes will transform the future of work.
