Leading Through Partnership Across the C-Suite presented at CISOIndianapolis 2014

by Kathleen Mcneely, Judd Williams,

Summary : Progressive organizations have long viewed the CIO as a business partner. Accompanying this evolution is a shift in the relationships that help to coordinate IT and the business units, and CIOs often must work hand-in-hand with CFOs to implement tech-driven strategies. As partners, CIOs must sharpen their business acumen to fully engage their financial counterparts, communicating challenges in ways that not only benefit the business but also allow for cooperative execution. In this session, NCAA CFO Kathleen McNeely and CIO Judd Williams detail the dynamics of their successful partnership and share specific strategies for aligning IT with the business.
