“CEE is delighted to partner with the iGroup Asia Pacific in establishing the ‘Disruptive Leadership
Institute’ to meet the organizational and leadership challenges in the ‘new normal’ resulting from the
COVID-19 pandemic recovery as well as the ongoing digital transformation which underpins the
Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) which ushered in a new business environment which is
increasingly uncertain, open and disruptive. Our research has shown that this change has a direct
impact on the development of future disruptive leaders of organizations in both public (government)
and private sectors and towards ensuring the sustainability of organizations across various industries

Prof Sattar Bawany, Author and CEO
Centre for Executive Education

“Disruption has impacted in a significant manner the way the world works, as many of us have
experienced today and in recent years. Today’s businesses, government and individuals are
responding to shifts that would have seemed unimaginable even a few years ago. Apart from COVID19, the impact of digital technology on businesses is the other disruptive force that is featured in this
book. The explosion of data and unprecedented advances in computer processing power globally have
dramatically increased the capacity to support decision making within various functional operations
in organizations across industries. Through the partnership with CEE, a thought leadership consulting
firm for the disruptive digital economy, IGroup believes that the Disruptive Leadership Institute will
be able to support the organizations globally to remain relevant and successful in the era of the
Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.o)

The book, “Leadership in Disruptive Times” also examines the fundamental qualities of disruptive
leadership that would distinguish successful leaders as they guide their organizations through the
disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the digital transformation at the workplace. It also
provides insights into an understanding of disruptive leadership. It explores the transformation of
organizations in today’s highly disruptive, increasingly VUCA and the digital-driven era of the Fourth
Industrial Revolution (also known as Industry 4.0). The book also examines the fundamental qualities
of disruptive leadership that would distinguish successful leaders as they guide their organizations
through the disruption caused by the COVID-19 crisis and the digital transformation at the workplace.

the disruption the world is currently experiencing. This book is going to be one of the only few Business
