Leading Through Digital Overload

Issue 29

The more we explore the challenges facing organizations, the more frequently we come back to the same set of answers. The cover story of this issue deals with the thinking that a diverse group of experienced consultants and executives – from architects to HR professionals, academics to tech entrepreneurs – have pooled together on the topic of digital overload.

Elsewhere we have behind-the-scenes reports on how businesses as varied as Airbus and BMS France deal with culture change and development. The latest thinking on decision-sciences from Fuqua, Ideabanks from Columbia, program design from Cranfield and the increasing focus on purpose from Oxford Saïd; as well as the vision of two business school deans from Darden and HEC Paris.
