The Impact of Digitization on Leadership and Work (openSAP)
The dramatic increase in network density and complexity has an immense impact on society and organizations. The changing face of consumer and employee relationships, volatile markets, and changing values and expectations make old management models redundant. Executives need to find a way out of the complexity trap. In this course, you’ll learn how digitization and increasing network density affect society, leadership, and work, and you’ll discover why individual intelligence has to be extended to collective intelligence. We’ll introduce you to a method that quantitatively and qualitatively analyzes the culture of systems, and show how this method has been implemented in large-scale studies.
You’ll also learn how pattern recognition reduces complexity without altogether avoiding it. We’ll introduce you to a method that quantitatively and qualitatively analyzes the culture of systems, and show how this method has been implemented in large-scale studies on ‘leadership excellence’ and the ‘future of work’. You’ll see the challenges organizations are faced with and the need for a paradigm shift in current leadership practice. In addition, we’ll provide you with food for thought about the future of our society, work, and leadership, and invite you to share your thoughts and ideas in our discussion forum.
