Leading the Digital Enterprise

  1. 1. Leading the digital enterprise
  2. 2. 2Copyright © 2016 Accenture All rights reserved. Organizations and workforces will turn over more rapidly. Leaders will practice a new form of intelligence. Digital business trends demand new leadership practices Networks will replace hierarchy as the core principle of the organization. Leaders will live in their networks. Workforces will continue to fragment. Leaders will integrate by sharing their brains. Artificial intelligence will become second nature. Leaders will have a machine on their team.
  3. 3. 3Copyright © 2016 Accenture All rights reserved. Leaders will live in their networks Eliminate bottlenecks in information flow—encourage people to build on knowledge rather than hoard it. Be an active participant in global conversations—use social media savviness to connect to everyone in the organization. Shape the debate—engage through genuine, provocative interactions that illustrate a leader's principles and challenge the workforce to respond.
  4. 4. 4Copyright © 2016 Accenture All rights reserved. Leaders will integrate by sharing their brains Show people what is on your mind—help people understand how you see things in the short- and long-term. Be present even when you are absent—achieve a more robust presence than would be possible even by the most ambitious internal media campaign. Extend the conversation—provide platforms for others to expand, test and refine your ideas.
  5. 5. 5Copyright © 2016 Accenture All rights reserved. Leaders will have a machine on their team Embrace AI—use smart machines to explore the consequences of a decision before you make it. Get ahead of the curve—experiment and simulate to remove the need to know everything before proceeding. Make AI your friend—empower intelligent machines to ask questions that challenge the status quo.
  6. 6. 6Copyright © 2016 Accenture All rights reserved. Leaders will practice a new form of intelligence Practice spiritual intelligence— bring people together by establishing a shared purpose. Create a narrative—develop a story of the organization’s past, present and future in light of that shared purpose. Cultivate purpose-driven leadership—build a specialist team of executives who can articulate the organization’s purpose and model it in their own behaviors.
