Joe McKendrick, author, independent researcher and speaker, wrote an article in Forbes about the best qualities that today’s digital leaders should have. It requires a little something borrowed and a little something new. Not only do digital leaders need to be able to embrace cutting-edge technology, but they also need to maintain some of the same tried-and-true management principles that have been around for the last 25, 50, or 100 years. Skills like communication are still just as important as understanding AI, Internet of Things, and Blockchain. McKendrick explained that “digital leaders must blend legacy skills with those of the digital era.”
