Business and technology leaders face many unknowns heading into 2021. The global pandemic caused many organizations to accelerate their digital transformation plans by as much as three to four years, according to McKinsey.  IT leaders need to build on the momentum initiated by these changes to create new business and operating models that embrace four key values of digital culture: speed, impact, openness, and autonomy.

In this webinar, Abbie Lundberg, president of Lundberg Media and contributing editor at Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, will discuss findings from her forthcoming research for Harvard Business Review Analytic Services about the new rules IT leaders need to adopt for the next normal. Together, Abbie along with the CIO of Johnson & Johnson, Jim Swanson, will dive into four priorities for CIO success.

Live event date: Wednesday, December 16, 2020 | 11 a.m. ET

On-demand event: Available for one year afterward.
