Lead and Disrupt: How To Solve The Innovator’s Dilemma What: Austin Technology Council (ATC) announces the first CTO Dinner of 2017 featuring technology leaders including executives from Lumeris, Phunware, Dell Technologies, Datical, and Alert Logic. The event will focus on innovation and will include themes from the book Lead and Disrupt. The book’s authors charge that a failure to innovate in the face of change is the fault of leadership style rather than strategy. Panelists will discuss how during times of change, innovation can be a challenge even for successful firms. Discussion highlights include: •The role innovation plays in remaining competitive in your core markets, while also winning in new domains. •Executing a high cadence ambidextrous innovation model to mobilize the organization to grow. •Applying a “leased asset” approach and lead design principles to speed time to market. •Punching above your weight by leveraging internal and external ecosystems to multiply impact. •Adding dynamic capabilities to SENSE the stuff that really matters and be able to SEIZE opportunities before others. Panelists include: •Ray Wolf , SVP Innovation and Architecture for Lumeris •Alan S. Knitowski, Chairman and CEO of Phunware •Liam Quinn, Chief Technology Officer and Sr. Vice President, Sr. Fellow, Dell Technologies – Client Product Group •Robert Reeves, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer, Datical •Marc Willebeek-LeMair, Chief Strategy Officer, Alert Logic Event Sponsors: The Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin (http://executive.engr.utexas.edu/pme/index.php) and O’Reilly (https://www.oreilly.com) About Austin Technology Council Austin Technology Council (ATC) is a non-profit organization made up of leaders and experts in Central Texas’ thriving tech community.
