Digital Leadership and Transformation
The second wave of digitalization permeates almost every field of corporate leadership and challenges innovation management in a fundamental manner. Increased complexity and higher speed in making and implementing decisions are countered by new opportunities for faster analysis, communication and innovation.
HHL is particularly competent in the fields of strategy, entrepreneurship, innovation and change management as well as e-commerce and multi-channel management. The Financial Times only recently ranked the school as the world leader in e-business. The university is collaborating with many start-ups and research centers as well as major medium-sized enterprises and DAX-listed companies on these topics. The students benefit from this cooperation just as much as the businesses.
In the upcoming months HHL will continue to explore what was started during the 2015 HHL Forum, namely to examine how dynamic change can be shaped using new, commonly digital instruments of leadership and the increasing openness of innovation management more and more. We ask: how can we prepare the leaders of tomorrow so they will be well-equipped for these new conditions? And what is more: how can we enable them to actively shape and utilize the digital revolution? There is a wide range of challenges and we would like to shed light on this topic and discuss it from as many angles as possible within the framework of different HHL events.
