Closing the chasm between business and I.T.

How CIOs can pave the way in enabling business value — better, faster and smarter way!

In many organisations, IT has been, and still is, labelled as the black box of the enterprise. Bridging the communication gap is a a big challenge CIOs need to overcome especially by developing a strong working relationship with the business functions to deliver value.

Kicking off the half-day IT Value Management workshop on 1 September 2016 with more than 30 CIOs was Sushil Chatterji, a veteran consultant in areas of Business Governance of IT, and Enterprise Architecture for Business Transformation.

CIO Academy Asia’s IT Value Management Workshop aims to give CIOs a deeper insight into how they can broaden their scope of influence by adopting new levers, roles and governance practices that go beyond purely technical capabilities with CIOs finding levers where IT and business units intersect. Traditionally, a CIO’s main responsibility involves using standard practices and performance measures to maintain IT’s asset value, CIOs must now instead take on new roles – bridging functional silos – which may take them beyond their comfort zones.
