Roundtable: Business-casing to the C-suite (Toronto)
CIOs are under direction to optimize their IT budgets, while at the same time, there is significant pressure for IT to innovate and invest in Digital Transformation. These seemingly conflicting priorities require CIOs to keep the engine running, while securing enough funding for their strategic initiatives.
To achieve these goals, CIOs must be effective marketers, business experts, and have strong relationships within all levels of their organizations. Successful CIOs are able to rally their teams and sell their ideas. They raise the profile of IT at the table.
This interactive roundtable will explore various examples of how CIOs are identifying, marketing, and selling their ideas to the C-suite.
Discussion topics will include:
- What and why some initiatives receive the green light
- What programs present a challenge to obtain approval for
- Best practices to gain C-suite mindshare and sponsorship
- Critical success factors for business case approval
- What is required from vendors or suppliers to help sell ideas?
- How is ROI calculated and measured?
