In this third episode of The Living Enterprise, our IT and business leaders debate the value of interpersonal relationships, the need to forge more allies than enemies, and the key relationships that need to be nurtured. You’ll also hear the value of storytelling, of evangelizing about the smart use of data, leading change management and how to defeat internal resistance.
