Michelle McKenna-Doyle: Disrupting the NFL

Share this post:

I’m thrilled to announce the debut of the Disrupt Yourself Podcast, a project I’ve been disrupting myself with these past few months.

Our first episode features a conversation with the Chief Information Officer of the NFL, Michelle McKenna-Doyle. She’s the first person to do the job because the title didn’t exist at the NFL before she arrived in 2012. (You have to hear how she used her interview to pitch her future boss, Roger Goodell, on the new approach.)


It’s Michelle’s job to dig into the NFL’s data and coordinate across departments to improve how football fans experience the game — and even how the game itself is played. Football fans are some of the most passionate in sports, so she’s never short on feedback. A healthy obsession with competition and a creative approach to problem solving make her one of the top disruptors in sports.

One of the things I’m most excited about as my conversations with disruptors rollout on the Disrupt Yourself Podcast is the increased ability to connect with you. I love having all kinds of conversations about disruption as I travel, speak and write. This podcast gives us a chance to further explore the power of disruption. So listen to the first episode and then comment here, send me a tweet or a note. I will make it a priority to reply.

You can listen to the teaser and first episode on:
