The Center for Digital Strategies at the Tuck School of Business will welcome Save the Children’s chief information officer (CIO) Edward Granger-Happ for spring term as an executive fellow and as the CIO-in-Residence. Granger-Happ will work with students and pursue research on leadership and technology, including projects on “The ‘Good Enough’ Principle: What CIOs Can Learn from Nonprofits” and “Disruptive Innovation and International Nonprofits.”
Granger-Happ is also the chairman of the board and a founder of NetHope, a collaborative group of information technology professionals dedicated to delivering information and communications technology solutions for emergency relief, human development, and conservation programs in more than 150 countries. In 2007, the editors of eWEEK, CIO Insight, and Baseline selected Granger-Happ as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in IT and one of the Top 100 CIOs.
“One way we learn about strategies and innovations for technology and the emerging world is to listen to and interact with organizations outside our industries and sectors,” says Granger-Happ. “The nonprofit world has some important things to share with the corporate and academic communities, and these in turn have important things to say to the nonprofit community.”
“We are delighted to have Ed join us in the center. His creativity and insight will benefit students and faculty alike,” says Professor Eric Johnson, director of the Center for Digital Strategies. “Executive fellows provide a unique perspective to our research, and we are grateful that Save the Children is willing to share Ed with the next generation of humanitarians.”
