The digitization of everything was just the beginning. That initial transformation paved the way for subsequent disruptions to occur with greater ease and frequency. Everything from software to transportation is now a service, bringing a consumer mindset to every interaction. New levels of connectivity generate more data to be monetized. And digital business models that transcend boundaries are clashing with business and regulatory frameworks established when geography was a real constraint.
All of these changes mean that many of the traditional talent markers of age and career path no longer apply. Indeed, many members of the current wave of digital pioneers have little to no experience in the industries they are disrupting. While this may make innovation easier, it makes evaluating and developing talent, identifying gaps, and designing the right roles and organizational structure more critical than ever before.
At Egon Zehnder, our Digital Practice provides both digital and legacy companies with the leadership solutions to harness disruption rather than succumb to it. Because we come directly from the industry we serve, we move at its pace, questioning assumptions and thinking about creative talent solutions, whether that entails C-suite search, assessment, or advisory work. Our global team, which stretches from Silicon Valley to Johannesburg to Jakarta, works closely with you to find and develop the leaders who can transform organizations.
