Business directors and Government ministers expect everyone to develop new skills in our rapidly emerging digital world, but many seem to be unaware that their own traditional leadership skills and ways of working are increasingly inadequate for the task at hand. Board members and Government ministers must therefore challenge their traditional beliefs and practices if they are to become better informed leaders of the transformation that is taking place all around us.
Changes in culture and structure are required to support those who take up this challenge and move outside their traditional comfort zone. This review of business IT exploitation is therefore intended for business directors as well as the IT professionals. It is couched in everyday language that is intended to lighten dark corners, and to illuminate a subject about which many business directors still feel uncomfortable, even when enthused by its transformational potential.
