    2022 Tracks at a Glance

    Success in times of rapid change, for both leaders and businesses, comes from embracing mindsets, practices, technologies and capabilities that are needed to thrive in the face of new and unexpected challenges. Day one of Gartner CIO Leadership Forum 2022 will focus on your role as the leader of the digital enterprise: collaborating with the C-suite to design the future of work, driving digital business acceleration, and enabling distributed digital leadership. Day two will focus on your role as the leader of the function as you build the modern digital foundation.

    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 AI-assisted development are among the factors that enable the democratization of technology delivery beyond IT professionals. This track will focus 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.
