  • Keynoted a 2-day offsite for a Midwest teleco’s IS group on trends and issues in enterprise software.
  • Spoke to 300 CIO's from financial institutions around the world about how demand for software has outpaced the workforce supply; the impact this shortage will have on their staffing strategies and systems plans; and specific techniques for rationally addressing these issues.
  • Taught Stanford’s first course on The Software Industry and co-taught the first course on Knowledge Management. Also taught executive education classes on Enterprise Software Trends, The Global Software Industry, and Software Sourcing Strategies at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business.
