Raising the ICT Game for Boards of Directors

Thurs 9th October, 12:00pm

The emergence of “The third platform” of outside technology services and consulting has not rendered ICT irrelevant to the enterprise. Research, nevertheless, indicates that boards of directors suffer from a lack of competency in governing enterprise technology.

This presentation explores the challenges and problems facing boards of directors and what role ICT professionals can play to raise organisational game. Consultant Robin Johansen discusses the rise in demand for people with solid ICT experience in governance roles and open career opportunities for ICT professionals who augment their technical skills with business savvy and strong communication skills.

The presentation will explore these possibilities and offer some career development ideas.
