In this session, Peter will present a new MIT CISR study analyzing how CIOs spend their time in four different time buckets, and describe the patterns of CIO time for top and bottom quartile company performance. We will compare the time data for CIOs to other executives, and ask you to analyze how you spend your time. Finally, we will break into small groups and discuss next steps on your time management journeys.

Data is a key strategic asset in the digital economy. Companies of all sizes and industries are still learning how to use data as the basis for new business models, as well as the capabilities needed to execute them. Sandra Sieber, Professor in the Information Systems and Entrepreneurship Departments at IESE Business School, will lead a session on how companies are developing business data-driven models and the capabilities needed to execute them in our ever-changing environments.
|9:10 AM||Prioritizing Innovation: Building a Portfolio to Realize Strategic Value Faster
Nils Fonstad and Jaime Rubio
In this session, Nils will review how enterprises are tracking the progress and impact of their digital innovation initiatives. In particular, he will describe how enterprises can ensure that an organization’s scarce resources—most notably talent—are allocated to those initiatives that promise to have the greatest impact on strategic objectives. Jaime Rubio, global head of BBVA's Single Development Agenda will join Nils to discuss the process, by which, every quarter, BBVA learns from over 2000 digital innovation initiatives about what each has delivered and what strategic value each as generated, ensuring that the most impactful ones get the talent they need for the next quarter.
|9:55 AM||Wrap-up & Feedback|
