The world is rapidly changing, and large parts of our society are still undergoing some form of digital transformation. Digital technology plays a crucial role in every organization, and those that have not kept up with the journey will find it difficult to defend their place in the market. To succeed in a digitalization project, the entire organization must understand the value and be prepared for the change. This means that leading a digitalization journey is a tough challenge that requires broad expertise and clear, strong leadership.


The winner of this year’s Grand Prize for Engineering in the Leadership category, with a focus on “Digitalization Leadership,” is a person who has led their team or organization from point A to point B. The individual is aware that the digitalization journey is closely linked to the people affected by it and therefore ensures that people are comfortable working with technology and that the technology works for them. Through their leadership, the winner has ensured that the business has smoothly transformed and adapted to today’s digital reality while demonstrating efficiency and scalability.
