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, Wayne and I talk about the brand-new Acceleration Economy content channel: Future CXO and Board of Directors.
The Big Themes:
- The new Future CXO and Board channel from Acceleration Economy: Wayne is helping to lead a new content stream, and his tagline is “two minutes of tech talk for top executives.”
- Technical debt and what CXOs need to know: there are 3 main danger areas when it comes to technical debt and cybersecurity, and Wayne explains each of those and why non-technical CXOs need to understand them.
- “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is wrong: in tech, being proactive is the only way to stay ahead. Ignoring problems you can’t see in front of you is going to cause massive problems, so CXOs must invest now.
The Big Quote: “The acceleration economy is accelerating, whether you are or not. And that’s the message I want to give to the CEO, to the CFO, to the CMO, to the board executive: you’ve got to understand what this stuff can do for you, or do to you.”
