Episode 38: Mission Control - Building An Internal Nervous System With Data With Ben Ford

In this week’s episode, I am joined by the CEO of Mission Control, Ben Ford. He shares his journey from disciplined military life to the forefront of technology innovation. We cover the transformational strategies of bringing military precision to business decision-making, the value of 'social technology' in managing tech complexities, and how leaders can champion a high-performance culture without the risks of burnout. Ben's unique perspective is not just fascinating; it's a blueprint for managing chaos in the corporate world. This episode isn't just a conversation; it's a masterclass in leveraging technology for organizational agility and performance.
