Key Strategies for Developing the Next Generation of IT Leaders (Panel)

Jeff Roseman, Director, Information Technology, Accretive Solutions
and other enterprise IT CIOs/Executives sharing lessons learned

An organization's success is defined by one factor: the quality of its leaders. But developing great leaders has never been tougher. The business world has changed dramatically in recent years and the standard paradigms of leadership may not be relevant going forward. Business leaders need a different model to succeed today and into the future, and business customers want to work with IT Leaders who understand the business and have a proven delivery track record.

This panel we will explore exactly how to identify tomorrow's best leaders, accelerate their development and deployment, and maximize their value to the organization. This panel of IT Leaders will explore how to successfully recruit, nurture, and develop the people who will one day lead. They will also explore the changes in developing the next generation of IT Leaders and some new and innovative ideas. We will cover practical tips on how to align executive development with corporate strategy, and how to ensure accountability and measure results.
