CIO Role in Digital Transformation

CIOs and IT leaders must become digital strategy agents for their organizations

The pace of digital change will never be this slow again

To keep pace with digitalization and technological innovation, CIOs must reshape their role from delivery executive to business executive. They must help their organizations move beyond digital experimentation and pilots, and bring digital best practices to scale.

Gartner helped guide us around our strategic planning, our future planning, enhancing our governance models to ensure we’re firstly client-focused but also outcome-focused and contemporary, moving away from the traditional ICT governance model.

Three Actions for CIOs to Transform Their Digital Organizations

CEOs are increasingly turning to digital investments to drive growth. These initiatives must improve product/service competitiveness or create new market opportunities. CIOs can lead or help transform their firms to exploit technology innovation and become more digitally product-centric.

Transformation Requires Collaboration

Changing the culture to be more collaborative requires specifying what that means, getting started through conversation and action, and measuring change.

What I like about Symposium is that it takes me out of the daily routine and gets me immersed in what is happening now, and what is coming in technology and business around the world.
