NEED FOR E-LEADERSHIP

e-Leadership is of crucial importance for companies and industry to excel in their business operation. For effective e-leadership, the skills required are seen as those which enable people with very strong ICT skills to lead qualified staff from ICT and other disciplines towards identifying and designing business models and exploiting key innovation opportunities. Their success is defined as making best use of developments in ICT and delivering value to their organizations.
Demand is growing throughout European industry to improve the quality of e-leadership, covering organisation leadership in ICT innovation to deliver business value. Research has confirmed a significant shortage of e-leadership skills across Europe - a call for action.
The European Commission e-Leadership initiative focuses on the leadership needs of top decision-makers and professional leaders at larger enterprises. These leaders oversee portfolios of both well-defined and emergent innovation opportunities. Successful design and implementation requires developing and engaging highly qualified staff to achieve the target value.

FOCUS OF INITIATIVE AND EVENT

The European Commission initiative found that closing the e-leadership skills gap requires a range of educational ecosystem actions. In particular it needs strong collaboration of demand and supply stakeholders to create new educational offers. Pilot work shows that this leads to innovative and relevant content for e-leadership curricula.
The present event is one of ten regional events organised by the European Commission across Europe. It is hosted by the Central European University Business School together with VSIZ – the CIO Association Hungary, EuroCIO – the European CIO Association, IVSZ – the Hungarian ICT Association and EIT ICT Labs.


The objectives of the event are to:

  • Inform stakeholders keen to promote innovation through e-Leadership.
  • Communicate the e-leadership Curriculum Profile and quality label approach
  • Disseminate lessons from pilot developments
  • Guide education institutions to develop e-leadership programmes
  • Encourage employers to make use of e-leadership programme offerings.
