Cisco recently published a podcast that I had the opportunity to do for them, for their online project they call Connected Futures: Business Innovation Insights. The project involves podcasts, a magazine, and other online material. In this episode I joined Michael Wade – Professor of Innovation and Strategic Information Management at IMD and Chair of IMD/Cisco Global Center for Digital Business Transformation.
