  • Partnerships/relationships – the education of IS and business colleagues will allow them to work more effectively and efficiently together. Considerations include how workers work, how consumers consume, and how suppliers supply.
     
  • Strategic thinking – introduction of innovative strategic thinking and problem solving throughout the organization. This will reap business value across functional areas while achieving harmony across IT and business.
     
  • Knowledge of the IS field – attendees will obtain a broad knowledge of the current and emerging management and technical topics within the IS field that can be directly applied to their organization.
     
  • Business management thinking – participants will develop a working understanding of the best practices in business management and systems thinking that can support the agility and flexibility required to meet changes in technology and the marketplace.
