John F. Mancini
President and CEO

John Mancini is an author, speaker, and respected leader of the AIIM global community of information professionals. He believes that in the next 5 years, a wave Digital Transformation will sweep through businesses and organizations, and organizations now face a fundamental choice between Information Opportunity and Information Chaos.

As a frequent keynote speaker, John offers his expertise on Digital Transformation and the struggle to overcome Information Chaos. He blogs under the title Digital Landfill, has almost 10,000 Twitter followers and a Klout score in the 60s. He has published seven e-book titles including "Information Chaos v. Information Opportunity: The Business Challenge for the Next Decade", "#OccupyIT — A Technology Manifesto for Cloud, Mobile and Social Era" and the popular "8 Things You Need to Know About" e-book series.

He is the author of "Mancini's Law":
  1. Organizations are systems of information networks. They only operate effectively when there are clear and predictable information flows within and between these networks.
  2. 50% annual growth in the volume of digital information means that these networks – and especially the points of connection between them – will become increasingly unstable.
  3. Without intervention, the resulting #infochaos will threaten the viability of the entire system.
John can be found on Twitter, LinkedIn, Slideshare, and Facebook as jmancini77.
