Leadership in the digital jungle

Many managers struggle with the management of digitalization. They see it as a technical discipline that is poorly connected to their day-to-day professional management.

With the book "Leadership in the Digital Jungle", Per Eeg wants to help these leaders move forward - and guide them to find their own way through the digital jungle of opportunities and challenges.

The book is especially aimed at managers in the public sector who are looking for an accessible and understandable handbook to help them manage digitalization.
You may experience uncertainty as you move into the digital jungle. This could be due to a lack of knowledge or a misunderstood and difficult technical language that monopolizes knowledge in the IT department and at the supplier.
