In this episode, Jeff talks tech governance with Shelia Warren, Head of Blockchain, Data, and Digital Assets at the World Economic Forum.
While tech leaders often think that governance hinders innovation, Warren argues that a basic governance framework can help solution developers think more deliberately about their products and build more inclusive experiences for users, which ultimately translates to higher adoption. Warren also posits that good governance practice increases public confidence in new technologies, in sharp contract from the negative aspects of largely unregulated technologies or crypto assets (think, bitcoin).
Jeff and Sheila also discuss the implications of “self-governance” in decentralized systems like blockchain, and the need to align tech developers and policy specialists. Join us for an in-depth conversation that just may change the way you look at governance in tech.
