Digital transformation is no longer an option. Every organization knows it must become a digital leader to survive and thrive. This is why businesses and governments are throwing trillions of dollars at new technologies. Organizations must build and deliver exciting new software applications. They must continuously innovate, move quickly, adapt, and stay ahead of the never-ending onslaught of digital data, experiences, and channels. Accordingly, we’ve seen the massive rise of cloud computing, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and many other innovations. However, well over half of all new software or IT projects still fail. That’s because technology alone does not solve digital transformation. It doesn’t address the fundamental issues that block or drive transformational success, and the most critical dependency. That is people. Join Margaret Dawson as she reveals the elements of digital transformation that technology can’t resolve and why human connection is critical to our success. Giving examples of what digital leaders do differently, Margaret will discuss 6 human factors to transformational success.

A look back at 10 years of TBM leadership and community building.
Innovating through technology is not new. For decades technology leaders have navigated the landscape of delivering competitive innovations that drive business value. CIOs have been known as “Transformational Leaders” and “Change Agents” – and this remains true today. However, what escalated seemingly overnight was the competing need to reconceptualize both employee and customer engagements that deliver anytime, anywhere experiences with minimal risk and a nimbleness rarely seen before. In this session, discussion leaders will share their own experiences and set up table engagements for attendees to answer various questions, including:
Public cloud strategies are often embraced for the promise of rapid scalability, on-demand agility, and best-in-class security, resiliency, and features. However, public cloud adoption presents significant financial challenges that, when not addressed, inhibit any firm’s ability to exploit the promises of public cloud. In this session, we’ll hear from leaders who are managing their cloud strategy with both TBM and FinOps, and how they are leveraging the maturity and rigor of TBM to align their organization’s capabilities and requirements. We’ll then break into small groups to discuss both challenges and approaches for building and launching a TBM-for-Cloud journey, including:
Delivering business value faster is a primary reason why many organizations are aggressively scaling Agile practices across their enterprise. At the same time these practices can conflict with traditional ways of working including planning, organizational, and funding models. Agile practices risk creating financial blind spots for both product teams who are expected to make decisions faster and with more autonomy than ever before, and their financial peers. In this session, hear from executives who are applying the rigor and guidance of TBM to Agile-at-scale so they can maximize their shift from projects-to-products quickly and transparently. Discussion topics will include:
Financial management of your technology investments is critical, now more than ever in high-paced and increasingly financially constrained markets. Cloud, hybrid, and digital development of products and services is integral to your business. But the decentralized, federated nature of those technological advancements has made it more difficult than ever to get a clear, accurate picture of the total costs of delivering those products and services. Furthermore, once you have an accurate view of those total costs, concerns arise on the best way to understand and communicate how those costs drive value, specifically the profitability of those products. In this session, we would like to hear your thoughts on how you, your peers, and your organization sees the evolution of technology costs and the need to see the profitability of the products that incur those costs informing your future decision-making processes.
To understand what drove the Great Resignation, Humu asked more than 90,000 employees across large, global organizations why they are (or are not) looking for new roles. Their biggest finding? For most would-be quitters, culture matters more than compensation.
