A convergence of forces is reshaping the global economy; emerging regions, such as West Africa, Brazil, China and India, have overtaken economies in the West as engines of global growth; the pace of innovation is increasing exponentially; new technologies have created new industries, disrupted old ones, and spawned communication networks of astonishing speed; and global emergencies seem to erupt at ever-shorter intervals. Any one of these developments would have a profound implication for organisations and the people who lead them. Taken together, these forces are creating a new context for leadership.
