Lunch & Learn: How to Future Proof Your IT Organization

According to the 2015 Fortune Global Forum:

“We are all technology companies now.”
“Competition can come from anywhere."
“The greatest challenge isn’t tech, but people."

Does Your IT Organization Struggle with These Four Issues?

  1. Driving Innovation: As IT leaders, we are responsible for enabling and driving innovation while at the same time maintaining service levels, ensuring security, and controlling costs.

  2. The Business Transformation of IT: IT Business Transformation can make or break an organization's efforts at establishing competitive advantage through the tactical use of technology resources. IT must shift its role beyond just business process management and business-IT alignment, to that of IT business integration.

  3. Why IT Executives should be Business Strategy Partners: Recent surveys of business and IT executives find that IT performance increases across the board when CIO’s are involved in shaping business strategy. Staying ahead of the pack requires that you market and translate your organization's strategy into basic day-to-day enterprise initiatives.

  4. Human Capital Alignment for Strategic Optimization: Today, IT is a people-intensive function and the importance of human capital has risen dramatically. The IT functions that can effectively translate their business strategy into an actionable human capital strategy can drive a new kind of competitive advantage.
