If you read nothing else, read these 10 articles from HBR’s most influential authors: 1) “Meeting the Challenge of Disruptive Change,” by Clayton M. Christensen and Michael Overdorf, explains why so few established companies innovate successfully. 2) “Competing on Analytics,” by Thomas H. Davenport, explains how to use data-collection technology and analysis to discern what your customers want, how much they’re willing to pay, and what keeps them loyal. 3) “Managing Oneself,” by Peter F. Drucker.
My current focus is directing and managing strategic and operational aspects of Pragmatic Works, a data services organization focused on democratizing analytics and data related technologies. I built the organization from the ground up (with my co-founders) to include industry leading processes, attract and retain top industry resources and execute powerhouse partnerships with firms like Microsoft and HP to deliver the highest quality solutions in the most innovative ways.
