At CACS 2019, we will revisit what we call the BA*SI*CS, three areas in which we can continuously refresh our skills and knowledge to make an impact in our profession: Business Acumen (BA), the ability to respond quickly and effectively to a risk or opportunity; Strategic Innovation (SI), the latest thinking and techniques that can help leaders develop practical and future-focused strategies for making the most out of information and technology; and Cyber Security (CS), which continues to be rated as one of the top business risks in our information-dependent world.
We will examine questions such as:
How can leaders and managers respond quickly and effectively to a business risk or challenge?
How can we improve our soft skills (such as relationship building, or project management) to have a greater impact?
What new leadership approaches can help us, and the leaders and managers we work with, achieve better results?
How can developmental interventions change the behaviours of leaders and managers to overcome roadblocks and result in better outcomes?
What frameworks and methodologies can help us shape our approaches?
How can we make the best use of—but also and protect ourselves from—the risks of emerging technologies, such as self-driving cars, drones, small internet-connected devices, smart cities and infrastructure, blockchain, artificial intelligence, and robots?
What are the elements of an effective digital strategy?
How do we see our product or service from our customer’s perspective, and use the quality of their experience to inform our decisions?
How do we craft a security strategy that addresses the emerging risks and opportunities in our fast- evolving, disruptive digital environment?
How do we protect ourselves from the cyber security threat, which business giant Warren Buffet
recently cited as the number one issue facing humanity—more dangerous even than nuclear weapons?
How do we apply our security dollar most effectively?
How do we trust others who have responsibility for the security and privacy of our information?
How do we deal with the emerging ethical and moral issues of technology risk?
How do we satisfy regulators that the privacy and security of information is in hand?
Our speakers will share their incredible insight from case study examples, ensuring our attendees walk away with actionable tactics and strategies that can be implemented straight away.
Our focus is on uniting leading minds, generating unrivaled learning experiences, and creating passionate discussion that results in actual transformation.
