How can we implement 'intelligent governance' and move from budget thinking to portfolio thinking? * How can I use the concept of architecture and turn this into a business instrument? * How will we staff these new IT organizations? What type of skills do we need, and how will we attract them? * How can I rebuild the image of IT, and market technology innovation to the business? * What will the new breed of CIO look like, who can transform IT into a Fusion concept? * How to build a 'new deal' between Business and IT, and how to maintain it?
