Workflow automation. Sounds like business speak …
and it is. In fact, workflow automation is today’s way
of saying “work smarter.”
It’s about leveraging the technology tools available to
make every process run more efficiently, every employee
more productive and every enterprise more competitive.
Our cover story is an interview between the two leading
thinkers in the areas of workflow and digital transformation.
Sophie Vandebroek from Xerox and George Westerman,
author of Leading Digital, are keenly aware of the powerful
possibilities for today’s enterprise and the transformative
technologies on the horizon. I encourage you to take five
minutes to read this meeting-of-the-minds article and
see what applies to your organization.
In addition, we have inspirational stories from our staff
writers and the editors at Forbes, including:
• How automation can enhance education
• Why tech-powered workflows are the new
• Five ways you can tackle automation hesitation
Beyond valuable content, we always want to bring an
optimistic smile to your face. So on the previous page
you’ll find a quick quiz to help you determine what
decade your workflow is living in. Like throwback
jerseys and singing to the oldies? This quiz is for you.
Hard to believe this is now our sixth issue of
Chief Optimist. In addition to the magazines, we’ve
posted hundreds more articles and videos for you online
at the GetOptimistic.com/HigherEd hub. Not only does
all this content help our clients and colleagues stay at
the forefront of business, it also helps us understand the
needs of every industry—every enterprise—better every
day. I sincerely hope you find value.
