Digital intelligence, the ability to understand and make use of the power of information technology to one’s advantage, is becoming a critical skill for survival and success in today’s economy. Information technology (IT) can make or break any type of organization – large or small. Most companies are just beginning to figure out how to integrate IT, and they’re hiring CEOs and top executives based on ability to navigate the digital future facing their industries.
In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, Sunil Mithas talks about how successful managers can develop and continuously improve their digital intelligence.
Sunil Mithas is an associate professor at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland in the Decision, Operations and Information Technologies Department. He recently authored “Digital Intelligence: What Every Smart Manager Must Have for Success in an Information Age,”(Finerplanet, 2011).
