#DigitalLeadership

This book provides a unique insight into how CEOs and top managers deal with the digitization of the world of work. It shows, based on interviews, how the highest levels of management in companies, the public sector and trade unions are experiencing these massive changes. The authors mainly go into the methods

and concepts with which top decision-makers face the next stage of the digital revolution. The specialty of this book, however, lies in the personal insights of the CEOs on how to deal with the rapidly advancing change caused by digitization. DigitalLeadership is a project of the German Institute for Trust and Security on the Internet (DIVSI) and aims to increase the reliability of the assessment of questions that are strongly related to technology and IT. Well worth reading, and not just for corporate, public sector and trade union executives.
