Designing for the Human Side of Digital Transformation

Designing for the Human Side of Digital Transformation

On this final episode of Digital Outliers Season 1, my dear friend Stowe Boyd joins to discuss the “humanities of it all.” Stowe is futurist and editor-in-chief at Work Futures. He believes (and my research shows) that companies are often missing the mark on digital transformation by thinking about it from an industrial approach instead of a humanities-based approach. In a wide-ranging discussion, Boyd shares his thoughts on the inherent bias in social media and how we have to do…

Employees Swipe Right to Personal Tech in the Workplace

Employees Swipe Right to Personal Tech in the Workplace

The consumerization of IT has been long in the making. While it’s nothing new, the employee-driven trends of social media, BYOD (bring your own device) and BYOA (apps) in the workplace are only accelerating and proliferating. In addition to managing enterprise technology infrastructure and digital transformation roadmaps, IT must now balance the sanctioning and connectivity of new technologies while also managing and mitigating costs, compliance, security and data risks. At the same time, employees will say, and attentive organizations will…

A Real-Time Conversation About AI and the Future of Work

A Real-Time Conversation About AI and the Future of Work

 I recently had one of the most fast-paced, fun and provocative conversations I had in a while. It wasn’t something that happened in IRL. Instead, this real-time conversation took place on Twitter.  Organized by Cognizant and Pega prior to #Pegaworld, I joined Ben Pring, author of What To Do When Machines do Everything as well as Cogizant and Pega executives and AI/FoW experts on Twitter, to discuss the unfolding reality of  AI and its role in the future of work. And, more importantly,…

Crossing Over to the Darkside of Digital and Seeing the Light

Crossing Over to the Darkside of Digital and Seeing the Light

“Yesterday is not tomorrow; we can’t innovate, we can’t do new things by opening old doors.” Paul Miller spends a lot of time thinking about the future of work. In fact, he wrote a book on the subject, “The Digital Renaissance of Work: Delivering digital workplaces fit for the future.” I greatly respect Paul’s work and I’ve been lucky to know him for quite some time now. In fact, I was honored to write the foreword to his book. Following that, Paul…

Would you make a decision to join or leave a company based on how you work?

Would you make a decision to join or leave a company based on how you work?

Did you know that employees and employee prospects judge the immediate and long-term potential of a company by their reliance on desktop phones? To some it makes total sense. Why would any company have tethered devices to talk to someone else? Don’t we have mobile devices and apps for that? Besides, I’m always on the go. On the other hand, some might wonder as to why we would be having this conversation at all. Of course there are desktop phones!…

In 2016, Resolve to ‘Disrupt Yourself’

In 2016, Resolve to ‘Disrupt Yourself’

Guest post by Whitney Johnson (@johnsonwhitney), author of Disrupt Yourself Oft-spoken though it is, ‘disruption’ is not a catchword; it’s a powerful force transforming organizations, communities, and ultimately the world. But it starts small, as an individual choice to change. Companies and organizations don’t disrupt unless their people do. Individual disruptors upend their companies in ways not always welcomed by their associates. Disruptors can be seen as a fifth column, undermining the familiar and comfortable status quo, not to mention their colleagues’…

Help! My Boss Is a Millennial (and I’m not)

Help! My Boss Is a Millennial (and I’m not)

Guest post by  Liza Bennigson (#StartupMom), a non-millennial’s take on the millennial mindset I’m not your typical start-up employee. I’m 37 with two young kids, and I still have an iPhone 5.
