OSHKOSH—A program to provide up-and-coming and recently appointed information technology executives the tools to succeed.
In the five-day CIO (chief information officer) Executive Development Program, participants will learn how to establish and achieve goals for deploying information technology (IT) for business value, maximize the return for dollars spent on IT and facilitate internal and external partnerships.
Executive-level mentors from major corporations such as Menasha Corporation, Kimberly-Clark, Snap-On, Secura Insurance, Jockey International and Northwestern Mutual will be facilitators for the intensive learning experience.
“It’s important that it’s real CIOs who helped to design this program and teach it,” said Terrie Pohjola, vice president of information technology for Secura Insurance and a graduate of the 2002 CIO Executive Development Program. “The learning is not just theoretical, from a textbook.”
Workshops, panel discussions, peer networking activities and assignments will offer ideas on strategic thinking, change management, employee development, return on investment and communication.
The program will emphasize the CIO’s leadership role in reengineering an organization’s business processes and its supporting IT infrastructures to achieve a more productive, efficient and valuable use of information within the enterprise.
Participants will get the chance to apply their knowledge to a case study and then make a presentation on how to approach the challenges a new CIO faces.
The program includes three modules.Participants must attend all program dates. All sessions will be at UW Oshkosh. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants.
The CCP, which sponsors the event, has been a hub of information technology-thought leadership since 1983.
