    Tracks at a Glance

    Success in times of rapid change, for both leaders and businesses, comes from embracing mindsets, practices and technologies that are needed to thrive in new challenges.

    Over two days at Gartner CIO Leadership Forum 2023, you focus on your role as the leader of the digital experience while building leadership and executive skills needed to accelerate innovative business and technology strategies — all allowing you to build talent through bold leadership to propel your enterprise.

    Track A

    Innovative Business Strategy

    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 and fund a strategy that delivers against business objectives.

    Track B

    Bold Leadership

    The IT organization no longer owns all IT. Today you must develop fusion teams of highly skilled individuals. You must find ways to build digital dexterity and manage risk for the organization. It’s a task that’s part leadership, part inspiration, part organization. This track helps you reshape attitudes for greater agility, ESG programs, risk management, and enterprise operating models.

    Track C

    Executive Effectiveness

    Top performing leaders are people centric and focus on relationships. Your technical skills may have gotten you to where you are now but they won’t keep you there. You need to improve your executive relationships and develop yourself to amplify your impact. Executives with high personal effectiveness strive to improve the value they deliver, advance their careers, and grow in both a personal and professional sense.

    Track D

    Innovative IT Strategy

    CIOs own ensuring digital foundations exist for the business growth opportunities CEOs expect. Foundations include resolving funding for the right initiatives, ensuring adaptive continuous strategy and execution, agile governance and resilient innovation. Your challenge is to create a modular architecture that empowers scalability and growth.

    Track E

    Dynamic Talent Management

    Having the talent to deliver against the ambitious technology agenda is a struggle in today’s environment. You need to use unconventional approaches to find talent, create an inclusive work environment to retain, and create a culture that is nourished and emboldened by change and innovation. Your remit is both the talent within IT and the business technologist across the enterprise.

    Track F

    CIO Role Evolution

    CEOs have ambitious agendas that require technology. You must step into the opportunities that now exist across the enterprise. The role of the CIO is expanding, not shrinking, and you must take a leadership role in delivering on digital dividends. One’s personal brand, communication skills and influencing are the hallmark of effectively establishing this expanded role.
