    Dear AIM Utah Members:

    You are invited to our next AIM General Membership Luncheon!

    Location:

    The Larry H. Miller Company

    9350 South 150 East, Suite 900

    Sandy, UT 

    The AIM Lunch will start at 11:30 am and we hope you can participate! We expect the meeting to last 60-90 minutes and many of your peers will be participating!

    Our Topic:

    Nobody is Smarter Than Everybody

    Our March AIM Lunch meeting features Rod Collins, former CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of America, on the topic of “Nobody Is Smarter Than Everybody.”

    I met Rod several years ago when he described how he transformed Blue Cross Blue Shield into an agile organization. Yes, the entire organization. I was intrigued by this as Rod was not a technologist immersed in agile methods like sprints and chickens and pigs. Rather he recognized that the principles of trust and self-directed teams were the key to innovation and operational excellence in changing environments.

    Please join us on Thursday, March 14th for this compelling presentation that is full of practical things we IT leaders can do to improve the outcomes of our organizations.

    About Our Speaker, Rod Collins:


    Rod Collins is an author and a leading expert on the self-managed organization and the future of business. He is a regular blog contributor on Substack where he explores how technological innovations continue to transform the rules for how successful businesses work. His upcoming book, Nobody Is Smarter Than Everybody: Why Self-Managed Teams Make Better Decisions and Deliver Extraordinary Results, highlights the innovative tools and practices used by a new breed of business leaders who understand that peer-to-peer networks are far more effective than top-down hierarchies.

    Rod is the former Chief Operating Executive of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal Employee Program, one of the nation's largest and most successful business alliances. Under his leadership, the business experienced its greatest five-year growth period in its 60 year history.
