2009 has provided the most turbulent 12 months in modern economic history. These recent events have changed forever, the way we will plan, compete and prosper in a slow-growth global economy.
Now is not the time for short-term speculation on when and how to prepare for a recovery. It is a time to re-interpret how you, your teams and your organizations must adapt to compete where the center of gravity has shifted.
Today’s enterprise CIO will be the first within their organization to encounter this shift. And while change can bring uncertainty, it can also open new doors. Although our efforts to foster technology and process innovation can serve as competitive advantage, we as business leaders must also challenge ourselves to explore new ways of making an overall impact to the bottom line. We can leverage this new global paradigm to influence the dynamics of supply and demand. Together we have the power to direct this shift in a way that will create new ways of doing business with our industry peers and solutions partners.
Join me and the world's leading IT executives at the 2010 Global CIO Executive Summit, as we construct the foundation to increase industry synergies, fortify our organization's position within the new global economy and forever change the future role of the CIO.
