Can technology inspire?

How does information technology (IT) influence and improve the workplace culture?

It is not enough for today’s IT managers to be familiar with technology alone. These IT leaders must also understand how we can harness the power of technology to improve our experiences, improve organizational efficiency and create better engagement with our stakeholders. Regardless of your industry, it is critical to explore how technology and innovation can help solve today’s leadership challenges and prepare our organizations for the rapidly changing technology landscape. Participants will examine how some of the world’s top organizations rely on technology to cultivate creativity as well as add agility to our day-to-day processes.

Other topics of discussion include:

  • Aligning technology goals with the mission/vision of the organization
  • Fueling creativity and critical thinking through technology
  • The role of technology in leadership and organizational development
