About the book
Over the last years, digital leadership, as new style of leadership, has gained increasing attention. The technological changes of the last decades have been shaping new concepts of leadership, such as digital leadership. Digital leadership is here defined as the human quality of leadership exercised with digital tools in the virtual world. We are in a period in which information communication technology (ICT) is seen as an important resource, therefore, the call for digital leadership is more and more urgent. Leadership, exercised through new technologies, is an activity that has aroused considerable interest among researchers from the beginning of the World Wide Web (W.W.W). It is also during this period that we find in literature more and more communication and articles that take for granted the positive aspect of digital leadership. In this sense, some research studies have promoted digital leadership as a specific form of leadership. Thus, in general, this book will be devoted to the study of the benefits of digital leadership (digital technologies), as well as the risks of this leadership type failure, and how to minimize these risks. New perspectives about digital leadership will be also presented.
