Are we heading toward an AI winter?

AI winter DXC Blogs

Most people understand “strong AI” as a term interchangeable with Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), or an artificial intelligence (AI) that has the ability level of an average human adult. The idea is that, one day, we will be able to build an AI that is as smart as we are, and that AGI will eventually […]

Extending the Scrum framework for better project management

scrum agile development DXC Blogs

Scrum — a management framework that focuses on cutting through complexity to better meet business needs — maps out the elements required to run a successful project. However, many projects need to go beyond the typical Daily, Planning, Review and Retro meeting sessions used in the Scrum process to be truly successful. There are ways to enhance your Scrum framework, increase control […]

How enterprises can get ahead of the IoT skills gap

IoT skills DXC Blogs

As the Internet of Things (IoT) morphs from “future technology” to something enterprises soon will have to manage (if they aren’t doing so already), it’s important to lay the groundwork for successful implementations. Much of that involves the basics of enterprise technology: Ensuring that data is securely collected, transmitted and analyzed. But making that happen requires […]

Changer pour grandir : un défi, une opportunité

Le changement. Il existe une longue bibliographie sur ce sujet, les consultants gagnent leur vie en aidant les entreprises à l’aborder de la meilleure manière possible, et pourtant, nous (les êtres humains), avons toujours un peu de mal à nous y faire. Ces derniers temps, j’ai beaucoup réfléchi à ce concept de changement, qui plus […]

El “cambio”, como desafío, oportunidad y futura prosperidad

El “cambio” es un tema sobre el que hay bibliotecas llenas de libros al respecto y muchos consultores han hecho fortuna prestando su ayuda para que las empresas lo emprendan. Sin embargo,  cuando nos hablan de cambio, todos sentimos que  alguien se quiere comer nuestro trozo del pastel. Éste es un tema que tengo en […]

program management DXC Blogs

When people think of NASA, they tend to think of the moon landings and the enormous benefits mankind has received from the side effects of the space program. (Think LEDs or radial tyres, artificial limbs or fire-resistant clothing.) But there is another great benefit of NASA that you might not be aware of: better program management. NASA […]

Are women leaders the mothers of transformation?

transformational leaders DXC Blogs

My last blog got me thinking about the main characteristics of a transformational leader and how they sound, well, almost motherly. Think about it: When we consider leadership outside the corporate context, surely the greatest leaders in many of our personal lives are our mothers, our caregivers. Where would we be now without all their compassion and hard work, their nagging about […]

Choosing the right collaboration platform saves money and time

Digital technology has enabled a new generation of workplace collaboration tools that allow employees to brainstorm, coordinate activities and jointly develop products. But with so many collaboration platforms available, how do enterprise leaders choose the tools that will be most effective — and most widely adopted? It’s a genuine dilemma, as any enterprise employee who has […]

Integrating video into ‘The Brand Called IT’  

video marketing DXC Blogs

If you did a survey, what famous global brand would your internal customers compare you to? How would you answer the same question about your IT organization? History tells me, there would probably be a disconnect between the two answers. As I’ve researched and written for the past six years, I’ve noticed most surveys still stereotype […]

Career advice for soon-to-be graduates — and all of us, really

Many of our leaders help out with charities, mentor and coach others, both inside and outside the organisation. Others among us work with universities and schools to make a difference in diverse ways.
