 In today’s environment of constant technology upheaval, traditional change management techniques fall short. Digital initiatives, executive expectations and an evolving marketplace necessitate change at a rapid pace. In order to adapt their business and their teams at this speed, C-level leaders must adopt an alternate approach. Compare your most pressing disruptions with peers and discuss innovative ways to guide your change leadership efforts and reduce uncertainty in the enterprise.

Topic 1: Addressing business challenges from an IT perspective

  • What barriers to high performance are you currently experiencing at your organisation? Within your team?
  • What tactics do you employ to build trust between IT and the wider business?
  • Which technologies and trends are currently creating the biggest disruptions to your business?

Topic 2: Designing for disruption 

  • How do you organize your product, technology, and security teams around disruptive technologies? i.e. Do you employ DevOps and agile approaches; what is working and what isn’t?
  • What disruption-oriented change-management techniques have you adopted or are you considering adopting?

Topic 3: Creating a culture of innovation 

  • How do you provide space for your team to innovate?
  • How do you foster a culture of creativity to attract and retain employees?
  • What partnerships across the C-suite have led to increased innovation? How is your team involved?

This dinner conversation is an interactive roundtable discussion designed to address the most pressing issues we face as C-level executives, in combination with an opportunity to network with our peers in a unique environment.
