IT Leadership and Beyond the CIO Role

Wednesday, October 26 | 2:15PM–3:00PM MT | Mile High Ballroom 4A-C, Ballroom Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session

Higher education CIOs often discuss how IT leadership provides exposure and knowledge of a broad scope of areas outside of IT that lead to opportunities to take on additional duties. Digital transformation has changed the landscape. How can you leverage these duties into leadership roles with responsibilities outside of IT leadership, AKA "Beyond CIO." Please join our panel of colleagues as they discuss how their careers transitioned Beyond CIO, and the opportunities and challenges of the transition.
