Sadin on Digital” episodes explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business.

Today, we talk about the need for CIOs to drive speed, flexibility and innovation across their companies.

Episode 19

The Big Themes:

  • The new, new normal – and the new abnormal. How many meetings have we had where somebody had a cat sitting on their head?
  • CIOs must drive speed, flexibility and innovation across their companies—Sense and Adapt at warp speed!
  • REI just built a huge new headquarters – and they’re never going to occupy it. The notion of work, is changing and we have to get used to it.
  • Not so long ago, a mainframe was lowered by a helicopter into the 35th Floor of an NYC bank building. At the time, it was pretty much normal. Now you have Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Oracle to do it for you.
  • Wayne Sadin is #2 on the Rise Global “IT Leader Power 100” list. “When you outgrow your IT strategy, call me!”

The Big Quote: “I am a believer in science. I’m a believer in engineering. I believe in the human spirit.”
