MARK TOOMEY, 11.00am - 11.30am, Chief Executive, Infonomics
ICT LEADERSHIP & GOVERNANCE: BUILDING A RESILIENT ORGANISATION IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD
Most organizations are highly dependent on IT and can exploit IT for competitive advantage. But despite the shift to commodity components and outsourced supply, the failure rate of IT projects remains unacceptable and operational IT breakdowns cause too much disruption. The key to overcoming these issues is a shift in focus from the supply arrangements to the way that the organization uses IT. Toomey will explain how ISO/IEC 38500 guides effective leadership and governance of IT from the point of view of those who control the business agenda, and show how this can lead to substantial economic benefit.
Mark is the founder, chief executive and principal consultant for Infonomics. Mark is internationally recognised as a leading independent advisor and educator in top level governance of information and communication technology. He has over thirty years experience in planning and delivering IT solutions that enable business performance, and ten years of specialist experience in Governance of IT.
