How We Think
Tools for thinking well together when creating systems.
The Hard Skills? Systems Leadership.
In the world of “digital transformation”, software is becoming systems. In order to provide systems leadership, IT professionals need an emerging set of (new) skills, some we might not think of as “IT skills.” This participatory talk introduces a few.
Integration leadership delivers thinking that cultivates conceptual integrity and solves systems challenges. Explores leadership as synthesizing knowledge, experience and good judgement in to sound decisions.
