Digital organizations today increasingly exhibit sophisticated characteristics such as hyperconnectivity, nonlinearity, interdependence, etc, in various shades, extensiveness, and intensity. There are competitions, conflicts, and controversies all over the places, which bring both opportunities and risks, unique scenes and hidden pitfalls. Digital dynamism doesn’t just mean volatility or uncertainty. With effective leadership and masterful design and orchestration, digital organizations can be operated as high-performance and high mature business catalyzed by diversification, versatility, and intelligence. It’s important to create a business context in which people are empowered and respected to create the business synergy that is the essence of the business harmonization.
