Breakout: Ahead of the Curve: the CIO as Systemic Leader

Domenico Lepore | International Expert and Innovator | Systems-Based Management and Complexity | 

Dr. Domenico Lepore is an international expert and innovator in the field of systems based management and complexity. Over the last 20 years, he has produced significant results in a wide range of sectors in Europe and North America with a systemic methodology. Since founding Intelligent Management in Canada, he has been increasingly called upon to support technology transformation projects due to the suitability of a systemic approach.

Lepore’s background as an experimental physicist with expertise in Standards has provided him with a unique insight into the application of science to management to achieve robust, predictable and repeatable results. In addition to an effective management methodology, he has developed an innovative approach to organizational design based on network theory.

Lepore co-authored ‘Deming and Goldratt: The Decalogue’ in 1999 (a “classic” that continues to sell internationally today) outlining a method for whole system transformation, from conventional, silo thinking to a systemic vision and practice. It looks at the whole system that every organization is part of, from supply chain to end users. The ten steps uniquely combine the management philosophies of Dr. W. Edwards Deming and Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt. Lepore’s work has more recently been published by Springer and CRC Press here.
