Using Improv Techniques as Game Changers

The pace of change is more dramatic now than ever before, and it seems about the time we are comfortable with what is happening, the game changes. Sometimes the IT function is in the forefront of that change and sometimes we are playing catch up. Taking lessons from his time at Second City, Kelly Leonard understands the value of changing the game and in his book “Yes, And” he provides some valuable lessons for anyone traveling through the uncharted waters of digital transformation.
