Calgary CIOs share strategies for innovation

While the majority of CIOs polled in various studies agree that “innovation” is high on their companies’ priority list, their definition of “innovation” is highly subjective and possibly only observable through its impact and delivered value (you’ll know it when you see it?).

The majority of people interested in innovation have a sense of what it is and are more concerned about how to go about encouraging innovation, developing a sustainable approach to it, and realizing business value.

To further understand this topic and stimulate innovative thinking, The IT Media Group brought together 15 IT executives for its Master Series CIO Roundtable “A Framework for Innovation”, which took place in Calgary on June 7, 2017. Sponsor for the session was Salesforce, with Chris Makkreel, Head of Solution Engineering, adding a variety of insights to the discussion. The moderator was John Pickett, VP, Executive Programs, for the IT Media Group.

Similar to The IT Media Group's roundtable held in Toronto, participants shared a number of insights and strategies that they use to tackle their innovation mandates. The conversations delved into six key areas:

  • Formalizing innovation
  • Aligning innovation with the business
  • Building the innovation team
  • Innovation culture
  • Funding innovation
  • Generating new ideas

The IT Media Group’s CIO Master Series is one of the most successful event programs for IT executives in Canada, bringing together scores of senior level peers for thoughtful private discussions around the top issues facing enterprise IT.
