Analyst(s): Consult the Board Research Team


This summary contains input from twelve members regarding their views on digitalization's effect on leadership strategies and company culture. We begin this summary with a look at the effect digitalization has had on members' industries today. We then dive deep on the nature of those effects and how they are changing companies' focuses. From there, we examine the greatest opportunities and challenges members see from the maturation of the digital economy and the general state of various aspects of enterprise functions before and after this maturation. We close by covering the relationship between digitalization and members' leadership strategies, organizational models, and company culture – including changes to KPIs, implementation of new working methodologies, and potential turnover resulting from cultural change.
