Enterprise communications professionals face plenty of day-to-day challenges and continually have fires to put out. Still, it’s important for your enterprise and your career, to understand the transformations happening in our industry, and to champion these forces within your organization, rather than resisting or ignoring them. Your job will be different within a couple of years, and those who are proactive about understanding and driving change will be the individuals that will prosper. In this session, one of the industry’s leading visionary thinkers will link the changes in technology and business with the implications of those changes for your role within your enterprise. He’ll discuss what you must do now to become the go-to person in your organization as new technologies and business trends like digital transformation fundamentally alter what IT does. You’ll come away with a better understanding of how to champion change in a way that’s credible and effective to your business leaders and IT colleagues.

KEY QUESTIONS:
* What underlying forces will be most influential in changing the IT/communications environment over the next 3-5 years? How will these forces impact your career and your organization?
* What should you be doing to become your organization’s champion for change as technology evolves?
* How do you develop skills and knowledge that make you a change agent, without being seen as unrealistic or focused on technology over business realities and budget constraints?
