How to Bolster the Impact of Today's CIO – Moving Beyond Faster, Better, Cheaper

In a time of increasing business change, there's a new movement towards the decentralization, and often a renewed trend towards business-unit delivery of IT resources. When you layer in increased reliance on externally delivered cloud-based technologies, the role of the CIO looks, once again, like it will change. Increasingly, the CIO must be viewed less as the deliverer of technology resources and more as the driver of innovation and transformation within each enterprise – and industry. Efficiency – faster, better, cheaper - is only part of the equation, CIOs, too, must also embrace change in order to become more relevant than ever.

What are the necessary steps that will help the CIO succeed in this environment? What changes have you made and priorities have you re-ordered to face new business realities in your company and in your industry? Do you understand past investments as they relate to a new strategic focus? Do you possess the right set of skills within your organization to face the future? Is your work sufficiently value driven? Are you adequately connected to all business stakeholders?

Please join us for a discussion on the topic of how to increase the relevance of the CIO in today's changing business environment. 

Features Speaker: James Stikeleather, Executive Strategist, Innovation for Dell
