Event description

Description

The ISACA Montreal Chapter invites you to its special full-day “Harvesting Value from IT” seminar event, which will be held on September 7, 2017. Hosted by one of Canada's top IT leaders, Mr. Robert Collins, and Sprott School of Business’ Dr. Gerald Grant, this seminar guides attendees through new models for approaching investments in Information Technology.

Please note that the event will be held in English only. Veuillez noter que cet événement sera présenté uniquement en anglais.

Seminar

This unique learning experience seminar is an interactive training session, which includes presentations, exercises and open discussions. It provides business and IT executives with new insights on how to manage IT to deliver real value to the organization. It also challenges current thinking, combining extensive academic research in real world settings with ideas tested and implemented in practice.

New models will be introduced in order to help IT and other professionals achieve real business value from their IT investments. These include:

  • The Value Cycle: A means to communicate value that creates real and lasting alignment

  • The Value Realization Cycle: A model that shows how investments in technology become translated into measurable business value

  • The Agricultural Model: An approach to technology investments and systems that focuses on results, not just budgets and schedules

Attendees are encouraged to bring a real-world challenge from their organization with them to discuss as part of the seminar. It is most effective when two (or more) people, one from IT and another from a part of the organization expecting to see value from IT investments, attend together.

CPEs will be allocated in accordance to ISACA rules.

Facilitators

The seminar facilitators are authors of a recently released new book, The Value Imperative: Harvesting Value from Your It Initiatives, which will be provided to all attendees.
