How IT Leadership Can Fundamentally Change or Affect the Culture of Your Company

1,005 views

Published on

This session will challenge the tendency of IT leaders to focus on the technology.

Meaningful organizational impact starts with changing the culture, not changing technology.

In this session, we will discuss how to cast a vision for your organization, take a realistic inventory of where you are today and build an attainable implementation roadmap. We will draw from specific examples where culture change has impacted an organization more than any technology change (for better and for worse). Key topics will include productivity, efficiency, empowered talent, and the ‘cool’ factor in transforming how IT is perceived.
