Lead-Digital was created a little more than a year ago with the Digital Leadership meetup (named differently originally). We started this meetup with a perspective of sharing learnings and knowledge beyond the mainstream Agile content.
The meetup focused on Digital Change and Business agility exploring the themes of Strategy, Operations, Organisation as well as People and Leadership. This website is the extension of the meetup and an effort to provide a continuity of interaction in-between meetups. In 2019, we will bring some UX / Design focus with our first meetup and we will look at organising some technology themes too.
We believe that Agile without Business agility is rather pointless. The challenge of working better with technology and being more adaptable in a rapidly changing environment has been a result of a digitally driven world. So far, for standard businesses, Digital was mainly about channels, Web, Mobile, Social, etc. Then came the rise of the Internet unicorns, and Digital is now gaining in every business. The rules of traditional businesses are being challenged, strategy, ways-of-working with technology, dynamics between the Business and IT, leadership, etc.
Lead-Digital and our meetup recognise that Digital is driving the need for change and the urgency. We also recognise that this need is not merely about adopting a process, but a profound reconsideration of the alignment of Business & Technology in every organisation and of the leadership practices and competencies. We explore how our enterprises are changing, shape and prepare the future of work.
Please take part in the forum, and attend the meetups. We also welcome volunteers, sponsors and partners in support of this effort of sharing knowledge and services. The site is open to all for now. In the near future, we will look to open a tiered model with value-add services.
