We are developing a new, research-based app that brings leadership training into the small and medium-sized businesses
The digital age is upon us – new tech developments arrive daily and nothing seems to be business as usual for managers in small and medium-sized businesses. It can be difficult to keep pace: there is little time to invest in out-of-house leadership courses and if there is, the knowledge obtained is not always easily transferable to everyday management.
The digital realm does, however, present us with the opportunity to attend virtual training courses – on-site and on-demand, rooted in our daily work. By bringing leadership training into the organisation, the iLEAD app allows organisations to take ownership of their training, rather than outsource it.
The Danish Industry Foundation has granted iLEAD 7 million danish kroner, with the purpose of strengthening future leaders and leadership – to the benefit of added growth-potential and increased ability to navigate in a highly globalised, competitive marketplace. iLEAD is an interdisciplinary partnership between Copenhagen Business School, The University of Copenhagen and The University of Aarhus.
Centre for Owner-Managed Businesses is renowned for cooperating closely with the business community and iLEAD is no exception. iLEAD has three cornerstones: knowledge, tool and dialogue that will contribute towards leadership knowledge-building and -sharing. With the iLEAD app, we want to motivate danish leaders to actively work on their daily leadership.
