AWS Conversations with Leaders Podcast
The AWS Conversations with Leaders Podcast features discussions with executive leaders who are transforming their teams and their organizations. Hosted by AWS Enterprise Strategist Jake Burns, the series explores topics such as leadership, culture, and managing change.
This week AWS Enterprise Strategists Jake Burns, Bryan Landerman, and Ishit Vachhrajani talk about the importance of not always striving for perfection. Leaders play a key role in creating a positive environment for their employees to fail, learn from failure, and grow.
Measurement drives behaviors–especially when they become targets, which in turn can promote fixed thinking or even gaming of the system. AWS Enterprise Strategists Jake Burns, Bryan Landerman, and Ishit Vachhrajani discuss approaches to measurement used at Amazon that help teams to course correct and navigate rather than focusing on goals to “hit.”
Jake, Bryan, and Ishit discuss why the CIO and their leadership team must have a deep understanding of business priorities in order to form a vision of what technology can do and the value it can drive.
Enterprise Strategist Miriam McLemore sits down with Scott Reese, the SVP of Manufacturing, Cloud & Production Product at Autodesk, to discuss Autodesk's transition to the cloud. Scott shares his insights on motivating employees, key areas of focus for their teams, and how the cloud is positioning Autodesk for the future.
