Stepping Up as a Transformational CIO

2019 CIO Virtual Event: Stepping Up as a Transformational CIO

The role of the CIO has rapidly evolved across industries within the past 20 years. However, as the importance of technology in organizations continues to experience exponential growth, has the value of the CIO run stagnate? With the role of the Digital Officer on the rise and tactics such as shadow IT coming into play, there seems to be a drop in certainties that previously gave value to the role of leading IT executives. That being said, what some might see as the end of an “old school title” actually presents a new opportunity for success within the IT function. CIOs are flipping the script and becoming transformational leaders as they continuously navigate the ever changing landscape of innovation and embrace the shift in focus from IT to business technology.

Join Argyle, in partnership with Workday, in our 2019 CIO Virtual Event: Stepping Up as a Transformational CIO. During the webinar we’ll discuss:

  • What it means to be a Transformational CIO through innovation and strategy 
  • Exploring digital strategies for customer, partner, and employee journeys 
  • The evolution of the Chief Digital Officer and their role in digital transformation 
  • Embracing shadow IT and leading an active role in IT governance and support
