In their book “NETWORK SCHLÄGT HIERARCHIE – Neue Führung mit Digital Leadership”, the authors Christiane Brandes-Visbeck and Ines Gensinger provide their readers with a helpful Canvas for developing their Digital Leadership style towards “Digital Leadership Excellence”.

This versatile tool is presented separately in this toolbox.
