Strategically Align PPM to Focus Transformational Change —
Successful leaders harness the inevitable change in today's business environment, and direct their organization’s transformation toward the most valuable outcomes.

Gartner Keynote: Delivering Change in the Digital Era

The digitalization of enterprises worldwide will have significant impacts on enterprise strategy and the ways in which it is made and executed, especially for the role played by project and portfolio management. The rate of necessary change is something most organizations haven’t faced, and PPM processes that have worked well in the past won’t in this future.

Gartner Keynote: The Wolf in CIO's Clothing

Leaders and executives are often in extreme political situations, which may place them at risk both professionally and personally. In extreme situations, normal management tactics usually do not apply. The leader may need to forgo traditional techniques and consider going to the "dark side." This session applies the wisdom of the controversial Niccolò Machiavelli to the world of the CIO, IT leaders and business leaders.
