Daniel Pink


Daniel Pink, Author, “Drive” and “To Sell is Human" Leaders at every level today confront two stark realities. First, in these fiercely turbulent times, they must do more with less. Second, the old-school management techniques we’ve relied on frequently fail. Enter Daniel Pink, with a fresh approach. Drawing on a rich trove of social science and cutting-edge practices from organizations around the world, Pink demonstrates the new ways leaders are persuading, influencing and motivating others.

The Evolving Role of I&O in the Age of Digital Business

With most enterprises investing in digital business, IT is more crucial than ever! I&O needs not only to support 24/7 internal business processes but also to support external customers who are increasingly doing business with your company electronically. You can see a rise in its importance playing out when a single day of outage caused by hacking or misconfigurations has an adverse impact to corporate reputation. At the same time, I&O is being asked to expand its role in many directions. This presentation looks at the evolving role of I&O in the enterprise and how it can be best positioned to support and enhance their future businesses.
