Sadin on Digital” episodes explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business. Wayne Sadin and I focus in particular on what CEOs and boards must do to lead their companies successfully into the Digital Age. Today, we talk about the need for CXOs to update their video conferencing technology for the current moment.

Episode 18

The Big Themes:

  • If you’re a CEO, CFO, CIO, or board member – how “natural” and “normal” are your video meetings? We share some suggestions on excellent and inexpensive gear to optimize effectiveness of video meetings.
  • You wouldn’t fly on a cropduster to meet a big client in person—so don’t use crappy video/audio gear to meet them online.
  • Embrace the OODA Loop. Fighter pilot Colonel John Boyd invented the notion of an OODA loop. We Observe, we Orient, we Decide, we Act. That’s an ideal model for today’s sense-and-respond world.
  • As budget season approaches, we share some helpful hints on how to strategically set IT budgets to align with our always-on digital world.

The Big Quote: “They go get it somewhere else, which leads to Shadow IT, which leads to audit problems, which leads to systems that don’t talk.”
