The CIO experience has become a roller coaster ride: an uphill challenge of budgets, talent shortages, and digital transformations and a downhill thrill ride of executive advancement to the C-suite and business leadership for the fortunate few. “There’s never been a better time to be a great CIO or a worse time to be an average one” according to George Westerman, Co-Chair of the MIT Sloan CIO Leadership Award.
The 2017 Symposium will help you navigate through your hazardous and exciting CIO adventure. We’ll help you prepare for now, next, and beyond through insightful discussions around the increasingly important impact technologies (IoT, AI, Blockchain, Big Data, DevOps, Cloud and Cybersecurity) are having on corporations and society as we collectively struggle with complex ethical and economic issues. We’ll also help prepare CIOs and senior IT executives for the challenges they face in guiding their enterprise through continuous digital transformations, in building a digital organization, in IT talent management, in business leadership, and more.
