Session Presenter(S)
Welcome & Introduction Stephanie Woerner

Dashboarding Your Transformation: The What & The How

A very common question that boards and senior executives ask during a digitally-enabled transformation is "How are we doing?" We propose that companies create real-time dashboards that monitor two aspects of value from digital: 

  • WHAT value is captured, tracking this over time
  • HOW value is created via the development of organizational and individual Future Ready capabilities

The combination of the what and how of creating and capturing value from digital drives the company toward becoming Future Ready. In this session, Peter will share MIT CISR reearch on dashboarding, using Schneider Electric as an example, and in breakout groups, have participants share a lesson learned from dashboarding.

Interview Sessions

There is little doubt that the future of business is digital. Having a top management team (TMT) that undestands the role of digital in the firm's success makes a huge differnce. MIT CISR research shows that large firms whose executive teams have that understanding—which we call digital savvy—outperformed other firms by more than 48% based on revenue growth and valuation. Peter Weill will interview a CEO/CIO team from two different member companies during each of our event options:

  • May 10: CarMax CEO William Nash and CIO Shamim Mohammad
  • May 11: Zoetis CEO Kristin Peck and CIO Wafaa Mamilli

Building an Artificial Intelligence Explanation

AI pushes an organization's limits when it comes to data monetization capability: it requires better data, faster processing, and more critical oversight. And, in fact, MIT CISR research has identified an additional capability—AI Explanation—that organizations need to build to fully exploit the power of their AI-fueled initiatives. In this session, Barb will describe the AI Explanation capability and what practices organizations used to build it. This session will include a series of polls that evaluate the state of AI and inspire discussion.
