IT Business Perspective in Action

June 21-22, 2021

Another world first!

Introducing a very unique educational experience not offered anywhere else.

Drawing on best practice business models like ITIL®, Lean, Organizational Change Management, and Business Relationship Management – together with our consultants’ own vast experiences – this two-day online symposium will help IT professionals grasp the full meaning of what it really takes to run a truly business-focused IT organization.

Why is this very important?

There are ever-increasing demands for value-driven IT services, and an ever-growing number of CEOs and CIOs understand the critical need and are seeking to strengthen IT/business collaboration and alignment. IT today must be multidisciplined, nimble, and – most of all – business-strategic and business-minded. A core competency for the IT “new normal” is to think and act in similar ways as other organizational functions.

IT Business Perspective in Action – a Must-Have!

IT must not only be the best at delivering business value through IT services, but also manage and lead IT with the same discipline and business acumen expected from other corporate domains. This online education symposium addresses what IT needs to be focused on to deliver strategic, tactical, and operational business value for the enterprise.
