Transforming the Next Generation Leaders: Developing Future Leaders for a Disruptive, Digital-Driven Era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)

A company’s leadership pipeline is expected to deliver its next generation of leaders who are capable of leading now. In a highly disruptive, digital, and VUCA-driven era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (also known as Industry 4.0), these upcoming leaders need to have a broader skillset, one that equips them to think and act globally. Conventional leadership development practices are no longer adequate. Organizations globally need to incorporate the next-generation leadership competencies to address the development needs of their upcoming leaders.

The current digital transformation that underpins the Fourth Industrial Revolution (also known as Industry 4.0) has ushered in a new business environment that is fast, open, and responsive, resulting in several organizational and leadership challenges. How do organizations develop their next-generation of leaders to navigate these nearly insurmountable challenges?

This book is designed to provide insights into an understanding of the best practices and contemporary approaches to the identification, assessment, selection, and development of future leaders of an organization with a focus on executive and transition coaching as a development tool. What is the role of leaders in transforming the organization to succeed in the digital world? How do organizations develop the next generation of leaders?

This book also seeks to guide leaders to succeed in the highly disruptive, digital, and increasingly VUCA-driven era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), by:

  1. providing insights into the role of leaders in transforming the organization to succeed in the digital world;
  2. understanding the best practices and contemporary approaches to developing the next generation of leaders;
  3. developing and implementing appropriate programs to lead and engage their people to achieve desired results.
