Executive Business & Technology Strategic Thinking Series

Organizations are rapidly transforming themselves using both strategic thinking and digital transformation initiatives to achieve higher profits, increased growth, and sustained competitiveness.

This unique series of lunch and learn events presents an opportunity to look at a much deeper level into the business transformation and technology approaches and methods being used by the cutting edge start-ups and mid-sized companies here in Austin. These lunches are also a chance to see the related strategies being used by very large enterprises that have been studied by University of Texas researchers. Each of the three presentations is focused on practical innovative learning for c-suite executives as well as higher-level IT management.

Delivered by Russ Finney in a sequence of three monthly luncheon events, each specific topic covers the current fundamental best practices being used by the top performing organizations studied through both UT research and years of direct client engagements.

Russ draws his insights as a business and strategy lecturer within the University of Texas - McCombs School of Business, as a researcher with the itmWEB Group, and as an advisory partner with the Stratamation Network. He is a frequent keynote speaker, and this year he completed a series of video interviews on “work reimagined” with the Wall Street Journal.

Prior to his current research and teaching, Russ worked as a CIO in the semiconductor, aerospace, and financial services industries for many years. In 2016, he was named a Top 5 executive CIO Influencer through social media by Apollo Research (@rfinney). He started his career at Ernst & Young.
