Gary Cokins
Gary Cokins

Gary is CEO of Analytics-Based Performance Management, LLC. He is an internationally recognized expert, speaker and author in performance improvement systems and advanced cost management.  Working with Dr. David Norton, Gary was involved with initial research that led to the development of the Balanced Scorecard. After holding management positions in different leading consultancies, he retired in 2012 as a principal consultant at SAS.

Gary will speak about how the accelerating and disruptive digital revolution will impact organizations’ competitiveness in the years to come.

Organizations that embrace a “digital disruptor” way of thinking will gain a competitive edge by automating new processes and services as a new business model. To achieve this, they will leverage big data, artificial intelligence and smart process engineering–to name a few emerging technologies that are propelling the digital revolution.
