Leadership in the Digital Age
The pandemic has accelerated digitalization and made us reflect on our relationship with the world. While many are excited about technological opportunities, there is also increasing concern about our ability to use tools like artificial intelligence and robotics in an ethical manner. What approach should leaders adopt to fully embrace the digital revolution while also serving the common good?
In this session, Professor Sebastian Reiche will join Professor of Practice of Management at New York University in Shanghai Heini Shi to explore these ideas and more. Together, they will present business cases that clearly illustrate the key drivers of successful digital age leadership in fast-changing environments.
