Next Generation CIO
Empowering leaders with a proven framework and essential skills to position their company for long-term competitiveness and sustainable growth.

Over the past five decades, IT has moved from a back-office function to a driver of growth and change.

These leaders must be able to create long-term business strategies, plan for unexpected opportunities, respond to disruption, architect solutions, prepare to innovate at speed and scale, communicate their vision across the enterprise, and implement technological change. Achieving this level of agility requires understanding three essential outcomes - business, architecture, and productivity. Making it happen requires leadership.

Next Generation CIO (NGC) is a unique program to assist business and IT leaders in transforming their organizations. NGC utilizes Transformation Leadership Development (TLD) which is an intensive program that empowers leaders with a proven framework and the essential skills to position their company for long-term competitiveness and sustainable growth.

NGC is not a solo mission

Attendance by two or more members of the same organization is required. This is encouraged to strengthen learning and to provide a shared language to achieve successful business outcomes.
