Strategies for acquiring, training and retaining people who accelerate company success
Talent matters. Steve Jobs was quoted as saying finding talent was THE most important factor of Apple’s success. This is true for any company. Those that attract, train and keep the best talent, are very often the most successful in their industry. It is because of the high value and scarcity of talented people — and the difficulty of replacing people — that significant advantage goes to companies who get things right.
This breakout session will feature three panelists from companies who have gotten things right with talent management. They will talk about their approach to talent acquisition, training, and retention.

MAXIMIZING CYBERSECURITY + BUSINESS INNOVATION
As evolving cyber-threats continue to absorb critical resources and capital, business innovation is at risk of being underfunded in many organizations. CIO, CISO, and IT leaders across all industries are having to balance business-driven cloud adoption, infrastructure modernization, compliance, and new cybersecurity threats. Corporate leadership, the board of directors, and shareholders all have a vested interest in keeping the organization secure. As leaders, this depends on how we address the needs of securing the organization while also moving the company forward.
Join us for an enlightening discussion between CIO and CISO about how best to balance and optimize your IT budget, resources, and priorities to achieve maximum effect.

RIDING THE THIRD WAVE OF AGILITY:
How leading companies are overcoming IT transformation fatigue
20 years after the Agile Manifesto was released, companies are still chasing the promise of agile.
The first two waves of agility transformed IT departments and helped us evolve from teams to scaling frameworks, but didn’t always lead to better products or business outcomes.
Now, we are in the critical third wave of agility, one that focuses on business and IT delivering shared outcomes. Success is no longer measured by how well you DO process, structure, and technology. Instead, it’s measured by how well you APPLY those three things to build differentiated products.
Join us in this interactive session where we explore the choices companies are making around leadership mindset, decision rights and career structures to capitalize on the third wave and finally realize the promise of agile.
