The digital driven economy has not only altered the way we manage projects and programs, it has fundamentally changed the way we conduct business across all industries and sectors and the way we live. The digital driven economy is a major driver of the global economy and rate of change and development is staggering. In today’s economy, any project, program or organization whose internal rate of change is slower than the external rate of change will be headed for difficulty. Successful companies attain their success through people with the right vision and leadership skills. This keynote discussion will share key leadership principles and strategies to keep pace with the rate of change that is ideal for leading projects, programs or organizations. I presented this hot keynote topic on March 24, 2015 in Orlando, FL at the 2015 Project World & World Congress for Business Analysts hosted by the Institute for International Research (IIR), the world's largest business conference provider.
