“Organizational Destiny,…By Choice Or By Chance?”

The noted futurist, Alvin Toffler, once said, “The illiterate of the future will not be the person who cannot read.  It will be the person who does not know how to learn.” 

The realized impact of technology on the future of work remains uncertain.  While some observers believe that newer technologies will reduce the number of available jobs in the future, others strongly contend that these same technologies will instead increase the number of significant new job opportunities. 

In any case a common view is that just because a technology might be available, half of all jobs are not going away anytime soon.   Many experts believe that such shifts will take decades, because transforming the workplace not only involves technological change, but societal change as well.  Some assembly required here.

One thing is for certain: the future will belong to those that prepare for it.  As a result, your organization’s destiny is ultimately a matter of choice, not chance.  Planning is bringing the future into the present, so that you have a real opportunity to begin doing something about all of this now.

In this annual showcase session we will closely examine how some leading influencers are trying to productively shape how our respective futures will play out, as well as how we all need to responsively prepare,…now! 

The “CIO Solutions Gallery” series is an ongoing nationally acclaimed forum where senior IT leaders and their business peers come together in a comfortable setting to share their experiences and insights, as well as collectively and collaboratively attack common issues.  Uniquely organized around “peer learning”, this provocative program has received high praise among participating CIOs and other senior executives in the technology and/or operations leadership community.   It helps to build an improved and creative personal network of peers and executives devoted to sharing best practices, renewing their skills on an ongoing basis, and raising the level of technical “literacy” and effectiveness within their organizations.   

There is no cost to invited senior leaders.  Sponsoring opportunities are available for invited technology product and service providers.
