He is the Director for John and Donna Krenicki Center for Business Analytics and Machine Learning.

Training Description: Every industry faces the need for digital transformation. It is easy to get caught up in the hype surrounding advancements in such technologies as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Blockchain, among others. How should you lead digital transformations effectively? This is the topic of Professor Kannan’s three-hour training session aimed at senior leaders of any organization. You will learn about amazing transformations led by companies such as John Deere and Domino’s Pizza, among others. You will also participate in an immersive case study, where you will be making decisions and learning about the right approaches to making those decisions. It will be an interactive session that is relevant (and hopefully provides some fun) for leaders in upper level management.
