As long as the locus of power in an organization lies outside of the LGBTQ+ community, allyship will play a central part in creating inclusive workplaces. But in 2023, says IMD professor Misiek Piskorski, it’s no longer enough to be a positive role model. True leadership, is about creating allies around you.Β 

He argues that the privileged few need to advocate on behalf of others for equal recognition and the ability to advance in the organization regardless of who they are. This process can be fraught with problems, so for those in power, allyship today will require energy, thought, and commitment.Β

MikoΕ‚aj Jan Piskorski, also known as Misiek Piskorski, is IMD’s Professor of Digital Strategy, Analytics and Innovation and Dean of Asia and Oceania. He is an expert on digital strategy, platform strategy, and the process of digital business transformation.Β 

Working with businesses across the globe, Piskorski aims to demystify digital transformation by taking this complex and complicated topic and distilling it down to its core principles, and to the five or six key decisions that companies need to take. The multilayered framework that he developed to help companies devise a digital transformation strategy consists of a series of easy-to-understand steps. This exercise is made more accessible by the use of cases to show how other companies have tackled the process. Companies come out at the end with a detailed strategy they can implement in full or in part.Β
