New Curricula for e-Leadership – Delivering Skills for an Innovative and Competitive Europe
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. As initial scope, the initiative has chosen to focus on the leadership needs of medium and large size enterprise at the top levels of decision-making.
The present event at IE Business School in Madrid is one of 10 Regional Cluster Events on ‘New Curricula for e-Leadership – Delivering Skills for an Innovative and Competitive Europe’ organised by the European Commission in cities across the entire European Union. Each event will be hosted by a leading university, business school or other organisation with a strong contribution to e-leadership skills development.
This Regional Cluster Event at IE Business School in Madrid is organised with the key objectives to bring together a wide group of complementary stakeholders and policy makers from different countries, present and discuss results, achievements and conclusions on guidelines for new e-leadership curricula and for participation to universities and business schools from across each cluster region.
Responding to the inadequacies in the skills market flagged by stakeholders across the EU, the European Commission has begun commissioning studies and launching initiatives designed to foster a full range of skills relating to ICT, “e-skills”, in Europe, the most recent focus and initiative is on the skills gap in the ‘e-leadership’ domain.
The initiative and the 2014 demonstration activities are open to education institutions, industry and associations understanding e-leadership skill requirements in the workplace. Notifications of interest to should be addressed to: guide(at)empirica(dot)com
Primarily targeted to innovative employers, CIOs and their associations, presentations will also be of great interest to universities and business schools as well as to policy-makers interested in promoting innovation.
