The Digitalization Matrix
In order to be successful in today’s dynamic business conditions the truly modern organization must be actively operating in the digital world. This new way of running a business requires an appropriate leadership style in order to be implemented and executed in a sustainable way. Entrepreneurial management offers the right mindset and methods needed to operate a modern digital company.
