ISS Seminar - Leading IT in the Era of Disruption

Digital disruption and technologies permeate across all functions in all organisations. It is relentlessly changing business models and structures across several industry domains. It brings threats as well as opportunities. Companies and governments acknowledge that they need to embrace digitalisation whole‐heartedly to be on the road to sustainable competitive advantage and differentiation.

IT leaders, managers and professionals need to be well‐prepared to confront these threats, exploit the opportunities and challenge the status quo so that businesses and Singapore can stay competitive.

There has been much debate on who should drive digital leadership. Should digital leadership be driven from the CEO’s office, the business, a newly‐appointed Chief Digital Officer or should it be a natural extension of the job of the Chief Information Office (CIO) and his IT organisation? Enterprise IT should encapsulate digitalisation!

Do CIOs and IT leaders need to adopt a new mindset and a new form of leadership to succeed? How can we enhance our IT organisation’s capabilities and capacity to anticipate, respond to and capitalise on the disruptive forces as they sweep across our landscape. Are there new tools and approaches available to CIOs and IT leaders as they drive digital transformation? Is there a proven recipe for success?

Speakers at this seminar will address the challenges and questions. Attend the seminar to learn the realities and strategies for success from speakers who are immersed in driving and enabling digital transformation for businesses and governments.

Key Takeaways

9:05 am The Impact of Disruption on Leadership

Wong Su-Yen Chief Executive Officer Human Capital Leadership Institute

Disruption and digitalisation has tremendous implications on leadership. There is an urgency for change by individuals and organisations. Leaders, including IT leaders, need to abandon old mindsets. They need to rethink, rebuild skills and capabilities and retool their approach to exploit and explore opportunities that disruption and digital transformation brings forth.

Su-Yen will present the what (implications), why (urgency) and how (action) for the consideration of leaders in the audience.

9:35 am Confronting Digital Transformation - A CIO Shares

Ang Mui Kim Director/Chief Information Officer, Singapore Ministry of Manpower and Cluster Director (Manpower/Trade & Industry), Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore

A key role of the CIO is to “keep the lights on” to support the business to run smoothly and grow. How easy and how difficult is this? When it comes to digital and business transformation, can the CIO afford to sit back and take the lead from the business? How important is collaboration and engagement with peers and partners in the eco‐system to the achievement of business outcomes?

Hear from Mui Kim the strategies that she adopts to drive digital transformation for the business.

10:05 am Enabling the Digital Journey

Ng Wee Wei Managing Director Health and Public Service, ASEAN, Accenture

Many organisations have embarked on their digital transformation journey. Has it been smooth sailing? Have they encountered any challenges or roadblocks? Many have also heavily invested in systems and infrastructure. Accenture works with companies to develop and deploy technology solutions under challenging conditions. It is likely that some are more successful than others.

Wee Wei will present a roadmap and the critical success factors for CIOs who are embarking on the digital journey. She will also be sharing the strategies for successful planning, development and deployment of technology solutions.

10:40 am Building an Agile IT Organisation

Pete Deemer CEO, GoodAgile

IT organisations need to be agile and adaptable in a landscape that faces demanding customers and regular technological disruptions. Each new wave of technological disruption brings forth new requirements and demands quick response by the IT organisation. How does the CIO trade‐off between agility and speed, and developing reliable and resilient systems?

How does the IT leader prepare his IT organisation and people to withstand disruption? Pete will share how the IT organisation can improve its capability and capacity to anticipate, respond to and capitalise on the disruptive forces as they sweep across our landscape.

11:10 am Thank you & Goodbye
