Since 2014, the Future of Leadership Initiative (FLI) brings together executives, smart young talents and thought leaders to investigate fundamental challenges of leadership in times of digitalization. 

Each year FLI does extended application-driven research on one fundamental question of leadership, with a focus on a specific key enabler of successful digital transformation. In extent to the research phase, the FLI hosts the Future Lab, a 2-day agile leadership experience. The results of the annual FLI project are then shared during the Future of Leadership Conference, an international think tank that brings together young talents, thought leaders and executives from all industries.

The initiative was founded four years ago in the spirit of global citizenship by the Center of Digital Technology and Management of two leading German universities (TU and LMU) and the MLI Leadership Institute Munich.
