Creating Human-Friendly Organizations

Issue 34

Two parallel forces are set to define business leadership through the 2020s. First, managing business for the greater good of society and the planet, addressing climate change and ensuring parts of society are not left behind. And secondly, adapting to an era dominated by AI, machine learning and quantum computing. In this issue we look at the fundamental requirement organizations need to face these challenges of the new decade: the need for people-centred leadership that puts human values at the core of its purpose.
