"The disruptors are coming! The disruptors are coming!" That's the shout we'll hear around the world this year as CIOs ride into the board room. How nice if disruption came, "one if by land, two if by sea," but that was the British in 1775. Today, CIOs and CEOs face multiple threats simultaneously. At the 2015 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, CISR's Peter Weill will lead a morning session to help business leaders create battle plans for winning in the digital economy.  In the afternoon, IDE's George Westerman will show you how to be part of the strategic conversation about transforming your business.

Board, CEO & CIO Roles in Dealing with Digital Disruption

 

Digital disruption is a real threat as well as an opportunity to many industries. In a recent MIT survey, Board members estimated that 32% of their company's revenues were under threat from digital disruption. Responding to, or taking advantage of, digital disruption typically necessitates a change in business model - therefore, the CEO and Board need to be involved - but they need the CIO's help. In recent years, MIT has worked with Boards, CEOs and CIOs to learn how to deal with digital disruption. 

 

The moderator, Peter Weill, will share his experiences, complemented with MIT case studies and survey results. Throughout the session Peter will facilitate a conversation with his panelists about how CIOs are helping their companies thrive in a digital economy, including:

Leading Digital: A Manifesto for IT and Business Executives

 

Fueled by mobility, analytics, social media, cloud computing, and embedded devices, companies in every industry are mapping their way through the digital realm. Yet some firms are far outpacing others in their ability to drive new value from digital technology. These companies, in industries from banking to paint manufacturing, outperform their competitors and fight off digital startups. What is the difference? Digital Masters do more than just adopt technology. They transform their businesses through smart digital investment and strong leadership of change. IT executives have essential roles to play in digital transformation. This panel, which consists of CIOs and thought leaders from a range of industries, will show you how to be part of the strategic digital conversation.

 

The moderator and co-author, George Westerman, will provide highlights of his research and engage his panelists, including:
