Although change management, agility and innovation beyond traditional boundaries is a constant discipline for all IT organizations, never has it been more vital than in current times.

Therefore, Tech Leadership Awards 2021 will solely focus on initiatives aimed at moving from an unwelcome disruptor of very traditional ways of working, to become a stabilizer and furthermore a catalyst to do business differently with a clear focus on collaboration, productivity and customer connectedness.
