Technological Disruption – Jeff Teper, Corporate VP of Microsoft

NYU Stern was delighted to have Mr. Jeff Teper, Corporate VP of OneDrive + SharePoint at Microsoft, visit as a Distinguished Visiting Scholar this past Academic Year.

Mr. Teper was gracious enough to share his slides and notes from his presentation:

“This is a talk I gave at New York University in October 2015 covering how technology disruptions can create opportunities for individuals and organizations.

My primary goal was to help students understand and embrace change. I tried to make it fun by interleaving examples, quotes (some real, some fictionalized) and my own career progression. The examples include not only Microsoft but our peer technology companies.”
