Esteemed author Malcolm Gladwell has said that “the digital economy is pushing us in a weak link direction,” where organizations can no longer afford to play “basketball,” but have to learn how to play “football.” As our technological tools, massive data repositories, and algorithms become more sophisticated, leaders must also become more sophisticated, managing their organizations in a new way that’s more reminiscent of shepherding a football team comprised of strong and weak players, than coaching a basketball team where a superstar’s prowess on the court (or lack of) can determine a team’s fate.
