As part of my doctoral thesis at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, I am conducting a survey about the competencies and skills a digital leader should have in the modern age. Anyone who exercises disciplinary leadership or professional leadership (assignment of tasks: project manager, senior consultant, agile coach, scrum master, etc.) is allowed to participate. I would be happy if you would help me and fill out the 10 minute survey! The survey is over!

Definition of digital leadership
Digital leadership can therefore be viewed as a leadership behavior, how corporate leaders and top executives think and act in order to master the challenges in the digital age. According to this, digital change is not just technology, software or organizational change, but charismatic and transformational leadership that fills the routines of technical and bureaucratic management with life, which is conveyed by visionary leaders. This leadership behavior begins with the personal change (self-management) of the manager, and not with the (work) instructions of a manager.
