Digital leadership is a cornerstone of the eco-system, and is often the difference between delivering digital functionality and digital transformation. We shared this view in our report — Digital Maturity: The butterfly effect — and it’s a subject we’ve discussed both here at Transform and with digital leaders.
I recently helped to host a a group of senior execs for a roundtable discussion about digital leadership and what it means to them and their organisations. In the room were digital leaders who sit on the board and others who don’t but still ‘own’ the digital agenda. Some felt their digital objectives are integrated within the company strategy, others felt they are fighting to secure boardroom ownership and the support they need to be successful.
But what’s actually happening in the boardroom? Most of those 2,000 CDOs won’t be Board Directors so how might this trend help to create more or better digital leadership in the boardroom?
