Cartoons and Cocktails - The Funny Side of Digital Transformation

We are very excited to have Tom Fishburne founder of Marketoonist and author of “Your Ad Ignored Here” deliver our closing special guest keynote on Feb 24th from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm ET at our upcoming ASUG Next-Generation SAP Enterprise Architect Virtual Conference.

The Funny Side of Digital Transformation

With cartoons and case studies, Marketoonist creator Tom will help us laugh at ourselves as a way to think about how we adopt new technology, overcome innovation blockers, and drive organizational change.  These are the awkward adolescent years of digital transformation. As Scott Brinker put it, “Technology changes exponentially; organizations change logarithmically.”  

During Tom’s session you will learn:

  • How digital transformation requires culture transformation
  • How to get past organizational resistance
  • How to use humor as the language of culture change

The “Cocktails” part will be fun as well - who does not love “Cartoons and Cocktails” after all.

You are welcome to join us for not just Tom’s session by other great speakers!

As we enter a new year that is sure to be filled with further disruptions, Jeff Schwartz in his new book WORK DISRUPTED: Opportunity, Resilience, and Growth in the Accelerated Future of Work (Wiley; January 2021) is essential reading for those looking to embrace these fast-paced changes as an opportunity to accelerate forward and flourish. The challenge, in a nutshell, is that you can’t navigate 21st century work and careers with 20thcentury maps and mental models. Albert Einstein once remarked, “You can’t use an old map to explore a new world.” Although a lot of leaders are trying to do just that.
