Reviews

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. From nano technologies to graphene; from new mechanisms to customised healthcare to the internet of things, 21st Century leadership is set against an operating environment that is moving ever faster and becoming ever more complex. 

Navigating this complexity is the leadership and management challenge of the age. However to navigate it one must first understand it. 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.
