The CIO Leadership Event will focus on the expanding role of the CIO as a key business strategist in managing the impact of cloud-based and consumer technologies entering the enterprise. Against a backdrop of increasingly sophisticated IT strategies that span all company divisions, senor IT leaders are playing a central role in accelerating business growth in the recovering economy.
The topics to be discussed at this event encompass the top technology and management leadership priorities for 2011-2012, including cloud computing, Software as a Service, mobility issues, social media and collaboration tools; business intelligence and data analysis; CRM and ERP; business process management; and data protection for customer privacy.
The CIO Leadership Event is a peer-to-peer conference for senior technology leaders. In a highly participatory, interactive format of workshops, discussion panels and expert presentations, the attendees will share key strategies, ideas and solutions around management issues of career and staff development, top-line revenue growth and other business and technology plans.
2011 Agenda Highlights:
Architecting Customer Intimacy at Waste Management, Inc.
The CEO’s goal at Houston-based Waste Management is to know more about his 22 million customers and how to service them than any competitor in that industry. For CIO Puneet Bhasin, that means establishing customer intimacy by enabling new forms of customer communication and providing full transparency to key data throughout a massive supply chain. In this case scenario-based workshop, Puneet will present the business goals and challenges for a specific initiative, which attendees in small workgroups will use to develop strategic proposals and ideas to share.
Seizing Business Opportunity: CIO Micro-Cases
Three CIOs will present brief case studies on new initiatives to grow their businesses that push the envelope on today’s hot technologies. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and probe the decisions made and leadership strategies employed by these CIOs.
Technology Strategy Workshops
Attendees can choose between multiple topics in these fast-paced, intimate workshop breakouts. Each facilitated discussion will focus on the top strategic challenges and opportunities associated with game-changing technologies, processes and services.
The Search for Depth: Solving the Leadership Shortfall in our IT Staffs
The lack of leadership depth on the IT staff is the top hurdle in advancing the strategic impact of IT and the role of the CIO as a business executive. Research shows that this situation is getting worse rather than better. In this expert panel and workshop hosted by the CIO Executive Council, you’ll hear a cross-disciplinary perspective on how to solve the problem. Immediately following the panel discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to work in small groups on specific solutions and recommendations.
Ones to Watch Awards
Another key highlight of the CIO Leadership Event is the seventh annual Ones to Watch awards program, co-sponsored by CIO magazine and the CIO Executive Council, which identifies and honors the rising stars in IT. These future CIOs have demonstrated leadership, driven innovation and delivered value to their business.
