Who Should Attend
CIOs, IT executives and personnel identified as leaders who seek a professional education program to increase their competencies and continue lifelong professional learning. Course content is written and presented by Silicon Valley CIOs.
The program is action oriented with practical models, and actual working artifacts from the desks of CIOs. With all of this available, you will be working with the actual tools used by executives currently in a CIO role. These case studies will allow you to return to your organization with new perspectives and deliverables.
Experiences of CIOs, as well as your own experiences, are shared and discussed with peers and other executives. Each participant receives a one-on-one follow-up meeting with one of the CIOs to address questions, increase your insight, and improve your experience. LinkedIn users may join the program’s alumni group to continue the discussion!
