PURC Leadership Workshop at Gartner Symposium ITXPO 2013
October 9, 2013
Orlando, FL, USA
"In five years from now, what do you want to have accomplished, what do you want to be most proud of?" This is the question that PURC Director of Leadership Studies, Araceli Castaneda asked a group of Chief Information Officers during the PURC leadership workshop conducted at the Gartner Group Symposium ITXPO 2013 in Orlando, Florida on October 9. The question prompted the discussion among CIOs, a Gartner Group representative, PURC Director, Mark Jamison, and Araceli Castaneda, who identified and debated some of the current and future challenges being faced as CIOs. Clear subjects of concern moving into the future ranged from cultural shifts within their organizations to the lack of understanding between industry and regulatory bodies on roles and regulatory matters. The session ended with a call for action on what, as leaders in their field, the CIOs should do to face these issues.
