The Time is Now for 21st Century Leadership

I’ve just had the opportunity to preview my good friend Melvin Greer’s newest effort, “21st Century Leadership: Harnessing Innovation, Accelerating Business Success“. Now in pre-release, this book highlights the compelling linkage between internet scale technology, advance business models and the need for forward thinking leadership.

From the vantage of hindsight, I can see how my own professional career has been molded by the global changes Gartner describes as the Digital Industrial Revolution.  In my consulting engagements, I’ve characterized this environment as the confluence of four major transitions:

  • Physical assets to Digital Assets;
  • Labor based operations to Automated operations;
  • Serial business processes to Parallel business processes; and
  • Bill of Material based commerce to Value based commerce.

These transitions dynamically interleave to fundamentally change our social, political and business environment. This in turn drives radical rethinking of the cultural, policy and business model status quo. “21st Century Leadership: Harnessing Innovation, Accelerating Business Success” is the leadership guidebook for this new era.

 “It is more important than ever for leaders to re-examine the current leadership models that take a fresh look at their contribution to innovation. Melvin Greer, Senior Fellow, Chief Strategist Lockheed Martin, is an advocate for a new leadership and innovation model where leaders can incorporate cutting edge innovative technologies, mature new leaders and inspire future innovators. Melvin will show you how to become an innovative leader in his new book “21st Century Leadership: Harnessing Innovation, Accelerating Business Success”.
