Today’s leadership challenges have become more intense. The number of transformative general purpose technologies this century is set to double from those introduced in the last century.

And those leaders who understand it are at the frontier of their profession. This book is all about how to be a frontier leader. It combines the latest academic research and insight from practice to develop an argument about how to lead, what to lead and who to lead.
