Designing for Digital
Jeanne Ross, MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research ( #JeanneRoss )

You say digital… I say technology. But the challenge of a digital transformation is not about technology; it’s about organizational design. Companies must be architected for speed and integration. What does that look like? How do IT leaders make it happen? Jeanne Ross will review research findings from MIT CISR on how CIOs can lead efforts to redesign their companies.

Be sure to sign up early as some sessions have limited seating. Visit our  Agenda page  for details.
