I caught up with Aaron Dignan for breakfast at the Soho Grand Hotel in New York. Aaron is the CEO of digital transformation firm, The Ready. Aaron is, however, no ordinary consultant. The first line of his bio explains that he “dressed up like a super hero for 180 straight days of the first grade, which marked the beginning of his life as an iconoclast, observer, theorist, and performer”. Over coffee and French Toast, we chatted about complexity theory, the many strange but important lessons of ants and bees, the dangers of innovation departments, Artificial Intelligence and the enduring power of networks.
