IT Visionaries

Apr 30, 2020

There are countless ways that humans and technology interact. And those interactions are becoming more and more prevalent in every aspect of daily life. But not everyone likes to use technology in the same way. So when you’re dealing with every single type of person imaginable, like Scott Strickland does as the EVP & Chief Information Officer at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, you have to really understand and offer every kind of digital experience. It’s a massive job, which takes creativity, coordination, and skill. On this episode of IT visionaries, Scott explains how he manages the job, the role new technologies like A.I. and RPA play in the process, and the other challenges he faces as a CIO. 

Key Takeaways
