Speaker(s) Amit Mukherjee, Professor of Leadership and Strategy, IMD

“Going digital” may make our companies successful, but history suggests we must first change how we lead. For over two centuries, “long arc of impact” technologies have transformed the very meaning of work, organizational structures, and leadership, rewarding those who changed and punishing those who didn't.

One such technology, broadly adopted in the 1980s, flattened corporate hierarchies, and made teams the building blocks of modern organizations. Over 45% of the 1975 Fortune 500 companies did not make it to the 1990 list. Executives who thrived in this changed environment learned new ways of leading that their predecessors couldn’t have imagined.

Digital technologies are once again transforming the workplace, almost insidiously introducing new organizational structures that demand a different approach to leadership. Executives now have to lead gender-, national- and culturally-diverse people on mission-critical tasks from relatively early stages of their careers. And they have far less time to make their mark than their predecessors did. The established norms of leadership are changing before our eyes, and arguably, executives being considered for leadership roles have profiles that are very different from those of their predecessors.
