David Rogers, Researcher and Author


The digitalNow 2018 opening keynote is David Rogers, researcher and author of “The Digital Transformation Playbook: Rethink your business for the digital age." David will discuss how digital transformation is really not about technology. Rather than being about upgrading your IT, it's about upgrading your strategic thinking. Technology itself is a tool. When leaders can marry technology with a new way of thinking that challenges their assumptions and asks the right questions, they are in the position to facilitate true digital transformation.

As part of his presentation, David will present the five organizational domains through which transformation takes place, and what the key concepts are in each one that enable change within that domain.

With a powerful foundation in place, immediately following David Rogers’ presentation, participants will hear from William Hurley, also known as “whurley.”

whurley is a serial entrepreneur, innovator, author, and “digital citizen.” whurley has been using systems theory and open source to create innovative technologies his entire career. He believes that leveraging technology to solve our problems, not just as consumers but as citizens, is the most exciting and noble challenge we face.

whurley will be joining digitalNow to talk about how he has re-envisioned technology and how it can serve society. whurley will share the work he’s done across a variety of social issues to remove hurdles and biases. He will challenge digitalNow attendees to think differently about how technology can serve society better by empowering us to not only demand a better future, but to build it.

 

DaVinci Session:

The intersection of ideas


Following whurley’s presentation, the community will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Matt Loeb, CAE CEO, ISACA. Panelists include keynote David Rogers, whurley, Christine McEntee, Executive Director/CEO American Geophysical Union, and more. These leaders will explore the synthesis of David Rogers’ framework, the examples demonstrated by whurley, and the applicability to today’s association.
