The software industry has long since developed into a mature sector, yet the pace of innovation and expansion continues to accelerate, driven by a relentless wave of bold start-ups who continually challenge the hegemony of the established global players. Some of these energetic young companies fall by the wayside, while some join the ranks of the technological elite – and the driving factor behind the success or failure of each is often the quality of leadership.
Software companies need passionate leaders with diverse skills and experience. Of course, senior software executives should have sound technical insight, but they must also combine a clear strategic outlook with strong entrepreneurial instincts. And they must be high-calibre operators in finance, sales and marketing, and strategic planning.
