Les Echos – Lisa Barlow & Philippe Compagnion – “Chief Platform Officer” – Tomorrow’s CEO

Tomorrow’s leaders will need to master the possibilities offered by information technology in all their complexity. “One of the key attributes of tomorrow’s leaders will be their ability to personally, authentically and repeatedly scrutinize such questions, and to take risks in order to create the trends that they think are right.”
