A thought-provoking conversation with Tom Davenport

Presented by

Tom Davenport Distinguished Professor of Information Technology and Management, Babson College

About this talk

Integrating digital technology into all areas of a business is an ongoing process of changing the way you do business. It requires foundational investments in skills, projects, infrastructure, and often, new or rebuilt IT systems. Overcoming cultural challenges was important to IT leaders prior to 2021, but in the wake of global disruption, organizations are now forced to rethink their traditional strategies in order to adapt and survive. An open approach to leadership means building an organization that can thrive, even during the most turbulent times. Leaders must weave values, principles, and norms into the fabric of their organizations to ensure people remain aligned, unified, engaged, and empowered. But with the future rapidly changing, how are IT executives supposed to plan for the unknown? Join Tom Davenport, world-renowned thought leader and author at the forefront of digital innovation, to discuss his perspectives and best practices on how to build a culture that can be a powerful force for innovation. Speaking alongside Tom is Michael Walker, Red Hat’s Global Head of Open Innovation Labs and Transformation Services. These experts will discuss: How companies can learn from transformation lessons and turn them into practical strategies. Why building a collaborative, fail-fast culture is more important than ever when integrating digital technology into all areas of a business. How to nurture a connected, innovative culture by balancing experimentation with tried-and-true practices.
