HOW TECHNOLOGY EATS BUREAUCRACY

Meet Leerom Segal, co-author of the New York Times Bestseller The Decoded Company as he reveals how Klick Health and a growing number of industry-leading companies are turning the Big Data lens inward, decoding employee work data in the same way that Facebook, Netflix, Spotify and other apps decode customer data to personalize, simplify and enhance the user experience.

Explore how progressive companies like Google, Starbucks and Whole Foods are using technology as a coach and data as a sixth sense. Learn how they are tapping into the analytical potential that exists inside every company to engineer vibrant cultural ecosystems to engage and empower their people and inspire amazing results.
