The challenge of Change – CAUDIT Conference presentation

Delivered at the bi-annual Council of Australasian University Directors of Information Technology (CAUDIT) conference at the Stamford Plaza Hotel in Brisbane, Australia – October 2017

Rob’s presentation explored The CIO’s role in building a sustainable, enterprise-wide adaptive capability for constant change.

New, digitally enabled ways of working and living require a fundamental shift in the design and implementation of enterprise strategies and architectures. Problem is, many – if not most – established organisations struggle with their own adaptability and agility capabilities. Additionally, evidence is that conventional enterprise ‘change management’ and ‘business transformation’ approaches are typically too slow and not well suited to the rapidly evolving, complex and interrelated executive, customer and business demands, not to mention risks.

In this presentation , Rob outlines a proven, robust and scalable approach to building a sustainable adaptive enterprise strategy and architecture capability to drive continuous efficiency and innovation.

This capability delivers a sustainable, adaptive enterprise value chain of integrated strategy, architecture, project delivery and service operations capabilities.

In particular, the critical role that the CIO plays in positively challenging and guiding their organisation on this journey is explored.
