An agenda built around your needs


As we prepare the 2019 agenda, view the agenda tracks for 2019 CIO forum. 

Track A
Innovate Digital
Information and technology is at the core of many new revenue-generating business models. New digital and data are ubiquitous in organizations, everyone is now a technologist. CIOs shifting to ContinuousNext must shape and execute digital strategy, leverage new business models and emerging ecosystems, yet also accelerate the pace of automation and optimization of existing IT and business models, processes and systems.
Track B
Shape Culture
The accelerating pace of change is placing the greatest demands on the people side of ContinuousNext. The acquiring and nurturing of needed skills and capabilities requires a more intentional and innovative peopleoriented approach with focus on individuals, teams and organizational structuring, that nonetheless can be increasingly dynamic and adaptable.
