We support... the evolution of IT executives

...into business leaders

The global information economy is fast becoming a reality For organisations to thrive in this new world

enterprise IT has to evolve...

We work with those committed to the growth and development required for corporate IT to lead the way an organisation understands and leverages the technologies that will shape its future. We equip IT executives to embrace business leadership; build internal and external relationships, profile and credibility; communicate powerfully with their business colleagues and external partners; oversee and execute visionary investment decisions safely and effectively. To achieve this they have to make the transformation from IT executive to business leader. There are two strands to our offering: an open academy programme and bespoke in-house academies. Both are composed of selected skills workshops, a Pocket MBA from Boston University Business School and executive coaching. If you want to invest in your IT leadership team to help build the future of your business, we would love to hear from you.

It is in your DNA to become a business leader Coaching We offer our clients intensive, high impact coaching. They can use this for any challenge they face such as: overcoming hurdles; building their business contribution; developing new skills for a bigger role.

CIO Pocket MBA A week at Boston University Business School, working with world-class faculty on what business will look and feel like in three to five years, given developments in markets and technology. They examine issues such as: • strategies, process and tactics for capturing value from both disruptive and sustaining technologies • how IT can add greater strategic value to the organisation in the network era • the role of the CIO in achieving innovation and growth. On their return, participants are able to have entirely new kinds of business conversation with the leaders of their organisations.

Our Workshops As with all we do, our workshops are focused on the journey from IT executive to business leader. They cover the critical personal skills, plus issues that relate to changes in IT leadership. Many are delivered by leaders themselves. The whole programme is kept under review to ensure we are delivering what our clients need to develop their careers to the highest levels.

Open Academy Programme Through the year we run an ‘open’ programme of skills workshops, development coaching plus CIO Pocket MBA courses with Boston University Business School. This enables IT executives to learn and grow in specific areas, benefiting from exposure to peers from other organisations and industries with diverse ideas, experiences and attitudes.

In-house Academy Programme Working with individual clients, we design bespoke courses for IT leadership teams based on our Open Academy Programme. This enables you to include organisation specific topics, and develop a tightly bonded network of IT leaders sharing common approaches, ideas and attitudes.

‘It has really helped participants become more aware of their personal brand and presence. They are taking greater interest in their own careers and ensuring they are on the right track’

‘We’ve gained stronger leadership from those who attended. They want more of a business conversation with their colleagues; more of a CIO conversation’
