"The CIO is ideally placed to lead the technical and cultural shifts necessary to bring their digital enterprises forward,” said Lindsey Anderson, Chair of the 2014 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium. “However, being ideally placed is no guarantee of future success. To meet this challenge, our speakers will provide attendees with actionable insight on how to embrace the organizational and technical changes needed as they guide their organizations in the months and years ahead."
