As we strive to make sense of artificial intelligence, digital strategy, and the Internet of Things, it’s never been more vital to think expansively about how we organize the future.

Register now with code PM18 to be there in October for Internet Librarian 2018 and this spirited talk about the design of paths and goals as Wednesday's Keynote speaker, Peter Morville, president of Semantic Studios, builds upon his famous “polar bear book” to reframe vision, strategy, process, and the information architecture of time; and draws from his latest book, Planning for Everything, to reveal four principles and six practices essential for shaping the future.
