Tomorrow’s Digital Enterprise depends on today’s ability to innovate. Yet in many organizations the CIO is not perceived, either rightly or wrongly, as an innovator; IT spends too much on keeping the lights on and lacks the agility to move at the speed of the business. How can CIOs use transparency to create a more business-focused culture in IT? And how can IT executives use facts and metrics to encourage value-oriented conversations with their business partners? This panel will share their experiences in using transparency to speed decision making, collaborate on tradeoffs to improve value, and find ways to fund and govern business investments in innovation.
