The world of global trade is rapidly changing, and globally disrupted supply chains have created a demand for leadership that goes far beyond the boardroom. Moving away from traditional earnings reports and infinite loop roundtable discussions, the digital, increasingly agile organization relies on leadership with long-term and strategic outlooks.
