C. DEJOUX, coll topos, 3ème édition, 2017
The digital revolution is having an impact, at different levels, both in every sector of activity and on companies. That's why managers should master hands-on management : decision-making, employees' motivation, talent management and strategic skills development such as:
- digital skills to develop the right behaviors and to comply with standards;
- agility skills to interact efficiently and develop collaborative working;
- design skills to innovate and transform oneself.
Today, managers face three challenges. First: to encourage their personnel to think outside the box; second: to define new frameworks, for it is up to the managers to establish standards and guarantee results; and third: to get people involved in the process of digital transformation to balance the rising power of artificial intelligence.
