“Agile technology development is all about better, faster and stronger," said Ms. Evans. “I’m thrilled to share my experience and insights on how we as a community of CIOs are bridging the gap between ideas and solutions in a fast and effective way at a scale that is meaningful for large and dynamic organizations.”
The Symposium will bring more than 800 global CIOs, senior IT executives, technology innovators and MIT academic thought leaders together on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for a full day of networking, collaboration and discussions around building a digital organization, IT talent management, business leadership and the increasingly important impact technology is having on corporations and society.
