CIOs have been asked by their executive partners for years to become “more strategic” and “find ways to add value” which translates to driving and leading cross-functional innovation within the enterprise. But innovation is not based solely on technology, even if technology is used in innovation. This session will focus on why CIOs are best fit to lead this type of innovation and how to foster and drive cross-functional innovation.
