Leadership in the age of digital transformation

Digital transformation is everywhere and often becomes synonymous with specifically technical deliveries (e.g. moving to cloud).

Digitally transformed organisations have a set of characteristics that need to be brought about by the right leadership behaviours, not just a technology stack. In this talk Mivy explores whether tech leaders should carry on working in the same way – or is something different needed?
