The "CIO Solutions Gallery™" Series
This unique and nationally acclaimed program is targeted toward high-end executives in the technology and/or operations leadership community. It focuses on collective engagement concerning issues of relevance and importance in the pursuit of IT value delivery within the modern enterprise.
Co-founded and co-produced since 2003 with the internationally renowned IT futurist, Mr. Thornton A. May, the series provides a content-rich environment delivered through the active collaboration of three (3) distinct, but highly inter-connected program components;
- Top tier corporate technology leaders,
- Strategic technology product/service providers, and
- Select named universities.
Unlike more traditional product- or education-based sales events, this acclaimed program is designed to leverage knowledge and proven experience across the broader breadth of these participating components, as well as foster the added development of trusted relationships among them in a way that offers mutual benefits to all involved.
While centrally delivered out of The Ohio State University’s College of Engineering, components of this series have been co-hosted in nearly twenty cities across the country, and senior executives from hundreds of noted organizations have attended on a recurring basis.
Other locations where ongoing quarterly "sister programs" have been actively conducted with/by Mr. May include the University of Kentucky (the "CIO Practicum™" series), the University of Louisville (the "CIO Practicum™" series), St. Augustine, Florida (the "Value Studio™" series) and the Olin College of Engineering in Boston (the "Innovation Lab™" series). Other university sites, including UC San Diego (the "CIO Practicum™" series) and Arizona State University (the "CIO Practicum™" series), are also now being actively considered.
The "CIO Relationship Bootcamp™" Series
Conducted through a contingent of acclaimed CIOs and CIO Emeriti, this program is designed to establish/improve vendor-client relationships through better educating our vendor clients regarding the motivations/values/habits of their targeted CIO market.
Past programs have been developed for such companies as Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Symantec, Veritas, Lawson Software, and Versign.
This program has also been used by a number of other noted companies to improve the internal relationships between their own IT organization and IT's own internal partners.
