About our discussion she says, "'The only source of knowledge is experience', said Albert Einstein. The natural flow of experience from person to person, however, seems to have been lost in today’s technology companies. Too much revolution – too little evolution. There’s no shortage of information, and today’s leaders are not less talented.
"After a long leadership career in technology companies followed by consulting engagements with dozens of companies, I have observed that something is broken in developing that much needed experience."
My recently published book summarizes the much-needed lessons. In the talk, I will share the common challenges and how to address them.
