All industries are facing rapid change and fundamental shifts in business models and rapid changes in customer expectations due to evolving technology capabilities. Volatility and the dynamics of change are upon us – something is always changing, something is always new. How can technology teams drive results when the rules are constantly being rewritten? The key is to embrace change and begin working in fundamentally new ways. Technology leaders must start “showing up differently” in order to create an environment that inspires creativity and agility. Learn how the CIO at Discover is transforming his technology team to deliver business value and achieve results with speed and flexibility.
