Universities as a whole need to understand this more than they do now, and IT, one of the key change drivers, has to earn the right to be in these discussions.

Chris was formally the Publisher of the Boston Globe and is now Chief Innovation Officer at Suffolk Construction. He is also a MOR Associates coach.
