From  time-to-time, developments in the IT market and the wider economy radically change the game for Corporate Strategies  for IT and the people that lead them. Whenever that happens, a new  generation of strategy emerges.

This is one of  those times.

As consumers, we  are becoming masters at rapidly changing our behaviour to exploit technologies  in ways that we value. Yet many organisations are still focused on how IT is  delivered, and how much it costs. How can organisations now become as agile as  consumers at creating value from IT in the context of their strategies and business  plans?

This seminar is about achieving this in the most inspiring, effective and painless ways  possible. It starts with how transformational changes in the IT market  have created four generations of Corporate Strategy for IT, where we are today,  and the ultimate end-game. Then, based on the real-life experiences of enterprises  around the world, it lays out proven, practical innovations for guiding people  through the next big step on the journey.
