When thinking about digital leadership in a career context, two key concepts come to mind – attitude and role. The digital age has greatly expanded the relevance of both concepts and taken them out of the limited spaces that belonged to them in the past.
The concept of “approach” refers to the managerial concept and the manager’s behavior in the digital context – the degree of openness to technology, the degree of the manager’s depth and familiarity with the digital, in general, and the way the digital is integrated into the business processes in the organization in particular. If in the past it was common to attribute the relevance of access to the senior management levels – the CEO, the VP, the board member or the chairwoman – then today, with the development of technology, digital access is a mandatory component for every manager, at every level in the organization.
Even in the role aspect, there has been a dramatic change in the place of the digital. In the past, digital was seen as the almost exclusive property of the Information Systems Manager, the VP of Digital, and the CMO. To a certain extent, the responsibility was also extended to those who served as a consultant, auditors, team leaders or changeleadersr in the organization. Today it is clear that understanding digital, its impact on the organization and the competitive environment is necessary knowledge for every position holder – the marketing manager, the sales manager, the human resources manager or the operations manager. This is an integral part of understanding the business. Digital is an integral part of the core of the organization’s business, affects the way the business is managed and the competitive environment, and therefore, it is mandatory for every manager to understand the concepts, the impact on the processes, and to be well acquainted with the systems relevant to his/her field of occupation.
