Editor’s Note: Leaders for the Digital Economy

Leaders for the digital economy: they are the men and women who recognize the remarkable opportunity to engage with the forces of entrepreneurship and innovation, technology and globalization, and the power of these forces to transform the world in which we live and do business. In this issue of Smith Business we showcase the many ways in which members of the Smith School community—our students, alumni, professors and friends—are harnessing the forces of the information age and, in the process, truly leading in the digital economy. From the president of Frito-Lay, leading innovation at the snack giant, to Smith professors using high-tech tools to develop best practices in management and marketing, to alumni mastering change in their careers and industries, this issue of Smith Business reveals what’s behind people and organizations who are seizing the opportunities of today’s digital world.

We invite your to share own thoughts and stories for inclusion in future issues of Smith Business on the eAlumni Network forum “Leaders for the Digital Economy.”
