Tracks at a Glance

Access the latest Gartner research specifically designed to help CIOs work alongside their C-suite peers to accelerate digital business models, enable the future of work, meet the needs of every customer and drive business growth. Each track has a particular area of focus to help you deliver on what matters most to you and your organization.

Track A

Innovative Strategies: Digital Business 2030

As a CIO in an era of ongoing disruption, your guidance on the creative application of new and emerging technologies is essential to business growth and competitive advantage. Learn what short- and long-term strategies lead you and your team to success in dynamic and uncertain times. In this track, we explore what it takes to create an effective and adaptable strategy.

Track B

Bold Leadership: Designing the Future of Work

The IT organization no longer owns all of IT. Today’s CIOs must develop cross-departmental teams of highly skilled individuals. You must find ways to attract scarce talent, build digital dexterity across the organization and overcome cultural resistance. It’s a task that’s part leadership, part inspiration, part organization. This track helps you reshape organizational structures and attitudes for greater agility, strengthen your teams with diversity and inclusion, and create a culture that is nourished and emboldened (not intimidated or overwhelmed) by change and innovation.

Track C

Force Multipliers: Enabling Distributed Digital Leadership

The dramatic growth in hyperautomation and other digital opportunities such as greater technical expertise across the enterprise, low-code development tools and development assisted by artificial intelligence are among the factors that enable the democratization of technology delivery beyond IT professionals. This track focuses on embracing distributed digital leadership through application of adaptive governance mechanisms and how to engage peers to co-create new ways of working that remove digital friction to speed business outcomes.
