Each month, “Wayne Sadin on Digital Strategy” episodes will explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business, with a focus on what CEOs and boards must do to lead their companies successfully into the Digital Age. Today, we talk about why CEOs must set the digital mandate.

Episode 1

Wayne and I discuss the appropriate roles of the CEO and the board in today’s day and age, how and when the CEO engages with the CIO to set the digital mandate and drive the digital agenda, and why a company’s digital strategy must be inseparable from its business strategy.
