Leadership and Management in the Digital Age (LaMDA)

Leadership and Management in the Digital Age (LaMDA)

The Leadership and Management for the Digital Age (LaMDA) has its foundations in 20 years of international research, findings and capability frameworks developed for organisations spanning public and private sectors, most industries and operations located across the world.

A Capability Framework

The LaMDA Framework is primarily intended to reinforce the strategic capabilities required by individuals and organisations seeking to create viable futures and to remain successful in the Digital Age.

A Capability Framework is not a competency framework. It is not, nor is it intended to be a descriptor of technical or behavioural outcomes for a given person in a defined occupation or role. Primarily LaMDA Framework is intended to provide the foundations for defining, auditing and developing leaders required by an entity to secure success.

LaMDA underpins an improved leadership and/or management development system that can better target cross-professional, multi-disciplinary attributes individuals should possess to drive the organisation’s strategic direction, engage people and foster the desired culture.  The deliberate emphasis is on complimenting process, systems and technical, professional and work-related competencies with the transformational capabilities required by pivotal leaders.

The Leadership LaMDA is organised into four core domains or groups (so-called SIPS) each having three capabilities, providing a total of 12 capabilities.
