Why IT leaders can't afford to miss the Flex Summit
The modern workforce requires enterprise leaders to pay attention to what’s old, what’s new, and what’s next for companies in the age of digital transformation. As CIOs and other IT leaders take on more demanding roles in their organizations, they are increasingly becoming key decision makers in how organizations can embrace the future of work.
Our research finds that CIOs are being measured on a long list of key company metrics including:
Reducing down time
Improving user experience
Migration to the cloud
In June, Flex Summit will provide IT leaders with the tools they need to identify and build new channels to work across distributed teams, enhance internal employee communications, take a stance on the importance of mobility, and more. With a growing list of critical responsibilities, Flex is an opportunity that IT leaders can’t afford to miss.
Be a game changer
Within the last 5 years, CIOs were viewed as order followers rather than agents of change and cost managers instead of strategic drivers. But times have quickly evolved to value IT leaders as Game Changers in not only their companies, but the future of work. We found that they are helping organizations gain a long lasting position to compete more effectively in digital transformation strategies. More importantly, they make empower individual employees, engaging them to work smarter and more flexibly.Flex is an opportunity to discuss just how these IT leaders are acting as game changers within their organization.
Hear from the experts
The fast-paced nature of digital transformation doesn’t stop for any IT leader. Luckily, we’re bringing together an impressive list of experts to discuss topics from productivity, empathy, AI and robots to a peek into the workforce in 2040. Tuning in to expert insights like these will help IT leaders learn, lead, and inspire an organization to reach its fullest potential.
Listen to new ideas
From our research, we know 80 percent of CIOs say IT’s ability to innovate is critical to business success. Innovation, however, only thrives when all possible ideas are considered during a decision making process. Siloed ways of thinking won’t create fresh ideas. At Flex, we’ll offer strategies and expertise, so IT leaders can begin to break free of feeling stuck in old habits.
As IT leaders become key decision makers, they are moving beyond the days of being a cog in a process and moving toward being relied upon for choosing technology that drives their company forward. IT leaders’ investments in technology aren’t just helping their companies get work done, they are changing the way their companies work. In a world where the future of work is flexible, IT leaders must take the first step toward success and be a part of every conversation.
