Gerald C. Kane

Dr. Gerald C. (Jerry) Kane is a Professor of Information Systems and Faculty Director of the Edmund H. Shea, Jr. Center for Entrepreneurship at Boston College’s Carroll School of Management. He teaches about how companies respond to digital disruption to undergraduate, graduate, and executive education students worldwide. His first book, "The Technology Fallacy: How People are the Real Key to Digital Transformation" encapsulates 5 years of research into how companies are effectively responding to digital disruption and transformation. Successful transformation efforts have less to do with the technologies a company implements, and has more do to with a mindset shift among employees, leaders, and the organization itself. His second book, "The Transformation Myth: Leading Your Company Through Uncertain Times" conducts interviews with 50 executives between March and November 2020 to learn how companies are responding to disruptions like COVID-19. The core thesis of the book is that disruption of all types is the new normal for business, and companies must respond through rapid innovation.
