How IT Leaders Can Develop a Robust Resiliency – with Author & Entrepreneur, Margaret Heffernan

About 3 years ago, Margaret Heffernan, did a leadership study with the Center of Epidemic Preparedness.
Way before any of us had heard of a thing called Corona Virus.

One of the executives she interviewed during the study, discusses 2x leadership mindsets 🧠…

  1.  “Just in Time” Mindset
  2.  “Just in Case” Mindset

    One mindset without the other is not efficient.

This thinking is brilliant.

Tune into this discussion to learn how IT leaders can apply this to develop robust resiliency, rethink redundancy & have an effective plan ready in your back pocket when disaster strikes.
