Digitalization places new demands on corporate management

In the course of digitization, the current range of C-level positions is enormous. In addition to established roles such as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Finance Officer (CFO), Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Chief Information Officer (CIO), new top management positions are coming to the fore. The increasing importance of data in the corporate context has enabled many companies to establish the role of Chief Data Officer (CDO). The same abbreviation is also used for the fastest growing C-level position in all industries - the Chief Digital Officer (CDO). The Chief Digital Officer (CDO) is responsible for the development of the digital strategy and the exploitation of digital potential. The new diversity of strategic executives in the digital age is accompanied by a new understanding of leadership. Successful leaders lead companies through the digital transformation process by setting a good example themselves. They act as thought leaders and force the company's ability to change through their goal-oriented strategy and vision. In addition, they are able to expand their own technological and digital knowledge and use it profitably.

Managers at the highest management level are also decisive for the development of modern organizations. In order to make this successful, they promote collaborative structures and networks and dissolve silos. Through the introduction of agile and cross-functional teams as well as the expansion of the overarching cooperation at board level, they are able to react to trends and steer companies in an environment of increasing complexity and dynamics. The successful management and strategy consultancy Deloitte describes this development as "Symphonic C-Suite" in its current trend study "Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends". The need for development in networked C-level collaboration remains enormous. For example, 62% of the German study participants state that coordination or cooperation between the Management Board members on strategic topics has so far only taken place on a weekly basis, although 85% of the respondents confirm that cross-departmental cooperation on the Management Board has the highest priority for them in the coming years.
