“Advance the Possibilities”

 

One has to wonder where it is all leading. The human race continues to surge forward in its actions and discoveries. Accelerating with it, and perhaps even enabling it, is a similar non-stop advance in our technology innovations and capabilities. Indeed, where is it all leading?

Our limits are in fact set by our imagination, with our technology often being the stuff that brings our imagination to life. Thus, future leaders should actively be assessing whether or not the level of their imagination is now where it needs to be. For example, are you thinking more about what the technology does, or are you thinking more about what the technology (or any technology for that matter) could do?  Are you thinking more about what your company does now, or are you instead thinking about what it could do in the future…as well as what it will take to get there?

General Colin Powell once stated that real leaders exemplify not only intelligence and judgment, but also the critical capacity to anticipate and see around corners. To do so requires a proactive stance regarding the awareness, assessment, and adjustments needed to capture any value possibilities that the future might hold. How are your skills there holding up? 

Throughout 2017, the CIO Solutions Gallery will be conducting a series of vital and informative programs on the theme of Advancing The Possibilities, wherein participants will gain a better appreciation of not only what is coming but also a better appreciation of just how its value might be captured. 

Please plan to join us this widely acclaimed unique and distinctive forum where senior IT leaders of all types come together to collectively learn from noted thought leaders, share their related experiences and insights, as well as collaboratively work together to attack common issues within this crucial agenda. 

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