In recent articles published in this column, we have highlighted the growing need for digital-ready leadership and the digital transformation of organizations. In today’s challenging environment, leaders must assume the main responsibility of fostering a company culture which is receptive to innovations in both internal methods and offered services.
The digital revolution has proven itself to be the way of the future, and companies need to keep up with their markets to stay competitive.
But when we talk about the bigger picture, we must realize that progressive and widespread digital transformation is not only a business or corporate concern. A large part of the success of digital leadership in the private sector is dependent on the digital readiness and inclusivity promoted in the public sector. Without the deep and proactive support of government, long-term digital leadership initiatives cannot achieve the momentum and wide dispersion necessary for mainstream adoption.
