8:45 am - 9:30 amOpening Keynote: Change Your Culture – Change Your Results
Randy Pennington, President, Pennington Performance Group
CIOs get it. You know that IT must be constantly in motion to stay relevant to the business. The challenge is in executing the right changes. How do you engage IT to embrace change and transform from service provider to strategic business partner? The answer is to change your culture from one that evaluates success by traditional IT measures to one that is business- and customer-focused, nimble and responsive. In this opening keynote, Randy Pennington, author of “Results Rule! Build a Culture the Blows the Competition Away,” will take a “roll up your sleeves” look at the heavy lifting required to transform your culture to deliver results and drive business. Using specific examples from his 25 years of business performance consulting work, he’ll talk about why cultural change is so much tougher than other change initiatives and offer proven strategies for dealing with the resistance you’ll encounter and the obstacles in your way.

9:30 am - 10:15 am Taking Advantage of IT Consumerization: A Field Guide for CIOs
Clif Triplett, VP and CIO, Baker Hughes
How are the market trends around IT consumerization having an impact in your company today? For CIO Clif Triplett of Baker Hughes, the $20 billion oilfield services company, the answer is clear."Consumerization is in the micro-apps," he says. "The world going forward is about personalization to you and your role and how you work -- and the emergence of micro-apps is the new norm." Designed to be integrated into other larger applications, single-purpose micro-apps simplify the user experience and streamline work processes (such as keeping multiple calendars synchronized). In this keynote session, Clif will detail the practical business benefits and success factors Baker Hughes has found with its micro-apps experimentation, and where he sees the greatest potential for CIOs to take advantage of social computing and other IT consumerization trends.

Your many successes are invisible, yet your few mistakes are highly visible. Your business peers are getting smarter about technology, but your job is getting harder.

In her forthcoming book ("The CIO Paradox: Battling the Contradictions of IT Leadership") Martha reveals how to work past the many inherent contradictions in the CIO role and establish yourself as a strategic, business-focused CIO. In this presentation, she will detail the practical approaches CIOs can take to increase their business credibility and be seen across the enterprise as outstanding leaders who make their companies stronger.

Against a backdrop of dramatic workplace changes fueled by mobility, cloud and the influx of consumer devices, the relationship between CIOs and their strategic suppliers is also evolving. The goal is ultimately to turn a sales transaction-based relationship into a collaborative partnership that creates business value on both sides. But how does such an ideal situation develop? How can IT organizations encourage greater vendor participation in deploying new and emerging technologies while managing less established industry providers? How do both sides establish the kind of trust necessary between real partners? Our panel of IT leaders and industry experts will share their insights on this challenging subject, along with some practical suggestions and actionable ideas.
