Speaking Topics
  • The Second Machine Age

    We are living in a time of brilliant technologies: cars that drive themselves; Jeopardy!-champion supercomputers; cheap, flexible, and useful robots; machines that print out parts, and more. These breakthroughs are ushering in the greatest era of transformation since the Industrial Revolution – a Second Machine Age. In this talk, Andy discusses the great promise – and the thorny challenges – of creating and deploying future digital technologies once thought to be the stuff of science fiction.

  • Leading in a Big Data World

    Recent research shows that ‘experts’ – people with deep training and experience in a field – are surprisingly weak in areas where we expect them to be strong, such as solving tough problems and making good decisions. In many cases, we’d be better off relying on data, algorithms, and outsiders instead of experts. So does this mean that experienced leaders are passe? What about motivating teams, setting vision, coming up with new ideas, and other traditional roles of a leaders? In this talk, Andy discusses the rapidly evolving understanding of expertise and leadership in the world of big data.

  • Enterprise 2.0: Business Benefits and Adoption Roadmaps

    In this talk, Andy builds on the frameworks and insights in his book to present an up-to-the-minute view of Enterprise 2.0 (E2.0) and the use of Web 2.0-style technologies and business practices by organizations. He incorporates the latest research and examples to show why Enterprise 2.0 is so valuable, and how to succeed with it.

  • Enterprise 2.0: The State of an Art

    Andy discusses Enterprise 2.0 approaches the companies use to achieve their business goals through these latest technologies. He describes the trends that have converged to make E2.0 an appealing reality, illustrating with examples from both the Internet and Intranets. He also frames the benefits brought by E2.0, and use
    • case studies that demonstrate how E2.0 can address longstanding challenges within organizations. Finally, he outlines the substantial barriers to successful adoption of these new tools and approaches, and discusses the critical roles played by senior executives in leading required changes. Andy makes the compelling case that E2.0 is not hype, but it is also not easy. Yet, it will serve to increase differences across organizations and help separate winners from losers in today’s competitive environments.

  • The Digital Imperative

    Today, all industries are experiencing digitization, a profound transition. Digitization is the transformation of business activities by the introduction and use of information technology. Digitization is not a rising tide that floats all boats equally. Instead, it is increases the pace and intensity of competition as well as the gaps between winners and losers in industry after industry. Andy breaks digitization down for line managers and CIOs, explaining how it’s causing three transformations. It’s allowing businesses to become more: scientific, more orchestrated, and more self-organizing. Companies that successfully put themselves through these transitions set the pace of competition, while those that do not will find themselves falling farther and farther behind. Andy also provides examples of leading companies who have met the challenge of seizing the opportunities that digitization affords.
