CEO, Building Smarter Organizations

I wrote the book on "Building Smarter Organizations" which is a "how to" guide to leading your zombie organization back to life. It based on my decades of experience leading large / complex public- and private-sector organizations to increase the flows of information, ideas and - most importantly - decisions. Some of the topics I cover include: - Innovation: Why so many paths to "No" but so few to "Yes"? - Knowledge is not power: Collaboration and connecting for decisions is - Leadership in a volatile and digital world - Visual management: You can't collaborate or manage something you can't see - How the (white) "boys club" destroys value in your company everyday
