EMSTL Faculty Member Don Stanford to Keynote Novarica Council Meeting

We are pleased to announce that Don Stanford, a Brown University Executive Master in Science and Technology Leadership (EMSTL) faculty member and founding member of GTECH (now IGT), will be the 2019 Novarica Insurance Technology Research Council Meeting Keynote.  He will discuss how “good” IT projects go “bad”, and why many companies continuously fall victim to the corporate project “death march.” Projects like these can take twice as long, and consume twice as many resources.

In its 12th year and with approximately 100 IT executives in attendance, this annual Novarica meeting features presentations by the company’s CIO members, Novarica’s senior team, and invited guests from outside of the industry. This members-only event will be held April 23-25, 2019 at the Providence Omni Hotel. EMSTL Program Director Michael Donohue will be in attendance.

Novarica could not have asked for a better speaker than Don Stanford on the topic of technology leadership,” said Donohue. “His seasoned insight and experience is invaluable for our EMSTL students and industry CIO’s that want to navigate the evolving tech industry road ahead.
