Perhaps you've heard the famous African Proverb "If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go with others". Our guest on this episode has gone far, but he's also gone pretty fast. Yousuf Khan has been CIO for a number of high-profile startups, a couple of them quite notable in the automation space. His talent and vision led him to those roles, but his networking and outreach allowed him to excel. Now as Partner with an early stage venture capital fund, he advises both CIOs and startups on how they can work together to bring next generation innovations to market.
We learn quite a few insights from Yousuf in this discussion, including when it's better to use artificial intelligence versus automation, how IT executives can prepare themselves to become CIOs, and why the CIO Group Therapy Dinners he started have not only led to better CIO decision-making, but better features in technology products.
