Envisioning the Future CIO: Building a Recipe for Success

Wednesday, October 01 | 5:30PM–6:20PM | Meeting Room W209A/B
Session Type: Professional Development

The CIO of the future is a leader who brings focus to the role of IT in higher ed. But what qualities make for a successful CIO? What traits are required for the CIO to be a strategic player for IT on campus? What can we expect the near future to look like, and what does it take to lead IT in this environment? In 2014 Jisc and EDUCAUSE convened an international working group of leading U.K. and U.S. IT leaders to define the CIO of the future. Join this session to discuss what characteristics the group identifies as essential and to add your own thoughts on what traits IT leaders need to possess.
