  3. 3. Context “We still have a large part of the University workforce … who lack the skills to make the best use of the IT facilities available to them. This results in ‘fossilised’ ways of doing things as individuals are unwilling or unable to use any tools other than the ones they are familiar with.” “Digital leadership featured strongly ... both as a positive feature of effective organisations and (lack of good leadership) being a huge barrier to progress.” “Leaders need to feel confident in their own digital capabilities, especially in relation to digital presentation, reputation management, and networking.” Beetham, Helen (2015) Deepening digital know-how, building digital talent. JISC. “...those who disengage have a disproportionate effect on the efficiency of those working in new ways.” University of York IT Strategy IT Strategy 2017/18 – 2019/20 “Senior managers in many organisations remain to be convinced and inspired by digital technology.”
