This change created a “quiet crisis” for IT. Demands increased as the world grew dynamic and digital.

Kevin Jones

Business Coach & International Speaker
VinJones

Over 70% of the workforce is disengaged from their work; in other words they are there for the paycheck.  And although you may create great solutions and develop the best systems and technology, unless employees are engaged you will find that adoption of your solutions will be severely lacking.  Focusing on employee engagement may not seem like an IT responsibility, but without it too many initiatives will not meet expectations.  During this keynote you will be introduced to the 11 secrets that create engaged employees - ones that are ready to adopt your technology.

2:00pm - Holly | Governance is Not A Four Letter Word!
sponsored by ServiceNow

Eric-Stephan Neill

Enterprise Architect
Lexmark International

You cringe when you hear the word ‘governance.’ Here it comes, rules, standards, regulations, delay, fights with colleagues and worst of all bureaucracy. Governance discussions are some of the most difficult that many company managers will have.

In this session discover how governance does not have to be a four letter word. Good Governance is not bureaucratic or burdensome. Combined with typical lean techniques, bring all of the benefits of governance with none of the pain by adopting lean governance!

Responsive, unobtrusive, business enabling governance is not only possible, but the outcome of properly applying respect for people, respect for systems, and good critical thinking-behaviors we all have if we expose them. Make governance work in your organization.

Key takeaways are:
1. Governance can be ‘light touch’ and effective
2. Culture is critical to governance
3. Governance liberates all from the tedious and enables innovation in harmony

3:00pm - Holly | How Business Intelligence Can Drive Cross Team Collaboration
sponsored by Pentaho

Ed Boyle

Business Intelligence Manager
Invoca

Collaboration has always been a key component to driving business success. Simply put, collaboration happens when the right people connect with the right information at the right time. When it comes to collaboration, a key challenge that faces organizations both large and small is the access to, and management of, their data. This is where Business Intelligence can help bridge the gap and drive better cross team collaboration.

Ed Boyle has firsthand experience of tackling these challenges. Invoca provides call intelligence to connect inbound phone calls with every digital touchpoint, giving marketers granular campaign attribution to help them create more effective marketing campaigns. However, we struggled internally to get the right data into the hands of our own sales and marketing teams quickly enough to provide their clients with the data they needed.  Join Ed Boyle to learn how Invoca was able to overcome these challenges by providing on demand self-service analytics to their business users to achieve true business value and collaboration.

4:00pm - Archibald Ballroom | What is Kindling You? Reinvention Made Easy!

Jim Mathis

Author

A positively motivating, energetic and humorous presentation that will change your strategic outlook.  Change is happening! With recent events, it is clear that your realities have changed due to changes in the economy, social/cultural transition and current trends.  Just as the Kindle has changed paper publishing, Netflix has changed the movie rental and broadcast television industry, Wikipedia has changed the "resource desk" and research industry, your IT business undergoes massive changes that aren’t always apparent on the surface immediately.  Leadership and management will always be changing as well.  Attendees will interact and answer Critical Questions dealing with how patients feel “punished” for doing business with your company; what policies, practices or personnel management styles have become “dinosaurs” in your business; what has changed in your business; and what is “kindling” your management and services are dealt with interactively with attendees in group discussions.  This will have attendees laughing, sharing and acting differently as they travel home.
