OE Cam’s recent European research highlights some interesting findings about the impact digitalisation is having upon our leaders and the capabilities they require.

The sea is bigger than we are: a force of nature we can never hope to control.  You have to ride it, wait for the right wind, wait for the tide to turn, trust to luck and occasionally take a risk.  An army and a navy are fundamentally different.  Good generals do not make good admirals.”

From: Mitsuko Uchida, Prospect Feb 1998

The incorporation of digital technology, as well as the transparency of data and knowledge, has accelerated the decentralisation of decisions and teams. Leaders need to move away from directing their teams (the General) to being comfortable with relinquishing control of decisions and providing guidance and vision of where teams are going (the Admiral).

How do organisations ensure that their leaders have the capability to provide Admiral leadership?

Please come along to our Learning & Development workshop on Tuesday 6th June in London to find out more.

We are moving towards a world of total digitalisation. Whilst some organisations are adapting well, others are struggling to manage the changes that the increase in technology brings – facing digital chaos, loss of control and a disengaged workforce.

This event will explore the opportunities for learning & development in a digital world and we are delighted to have Jay Sharpe, People Development Manager from international gaming company Jagex as our guest speaker.  Jay has more than 10 years experience as an L&D professional, working in some of the most innovative and forward thinking organisations such as Apple and Vodafone. Jay will share his expertise of creating learning and development programmes which incorporate gamification to deliver exciting, impactful learning experiences and deliver sustainable behaviour change.

OE Cam will then facilitate group discussions to debate the key themes and share the insights from our latest European research into the people and organisational implications of digitalisation. The research investigates the change in leadership styles and capabilities required to work in an increasingly digital workplace and defines which factors are key to organisational success.
