Dick Davies

Dick Davies is a technophobe who has made a career in the computer industry. He started out as an “ineducable” programmer (quoting from the course report), but later made his way to a range of management positions. He saw in computing an industry that thrived on “toys for boys”, not customer benefit and in response to this, scoped out a radical way of transforming how the industry related to its customers. His employer (an F100 corporation) funded an exploratory activity to apply these ideas, which generated business opportunities of an enormous scale during the ten years he led it. He continues to see a huge strategic opportunity if business leaders align how power operates, how employees see themselves and how technology is used.
