How IT Leaders Can Move into Business Leadership Roles

Eric Dirst will share two different, but often complementary, approaches to leveraging your IT leadership skills to eventually take on business leadership roles within your company. Eric will cover tactics and strategies to position yourself for senior operational roles, such as COO or VP Shared Services, as well as tactics and strategies to position yourself to lead Innovation and Growth areas of the business by investing in R&D to find new ways to integrate IT into your company’s products and services. Eric himself employed these tactics when he was SVP & CIO at DeVry Education Group, to eventually become President of one of the divisions running all shared operations as well enterprise R&D.
