Any transformation, particularly a strategic one, is a big challenge. Often, it's not clear at the offset as to how it's going to be fully accomplished. The idea of not backing down from unknown challenges is what lies at the heart of any transformation - be it personal or in business. This inspirational talk by Rick Crandall, a seasoned technology veteran who chose to take a road less travelled, will explore what it takes for leaders to break away from their comfort zone, find the right resources and break down the problem, in a way that is both pragmatic and keeps the passion alive.
