The digital era has underscored the need for IT talent and technical skills, but it's also exposed one of IT's greatest shortages: leadership.
With digital transformation efforts on overdrive, CIOs are now looking ahead to the next big innovations they need to be spearheading for the future viability of the business. And organizations are scrambling to strengthen their pipelines of visionary IT leaders.
We launched The Technology Leadership Experience to help organizations address this issue head on. Developed by IT leaders for IT leaders, The TechLX offers the next generation of technology executives a powerful combination of peer-to-peer networking, one-on-one mentoring with world-class CIOs, virtual workshops on key competency areas, and self-awareness tools to broaden their perspectives and accelerate their growth.
With the pressing leadership challenge today’s organizations are facing, The TechLX is a critical component of any IT leadership development initiative. Companies are leveraging it alongside their own internal efforts to ensure they’re hitting on the competencies and skills that tomorrow’s CIOs will need in order to anticipate and deliver on mission-critical transformational strategies.
As O&A’s Director of IT Workforce Strategy and Client Initiatives Erica Hartnett puts it, “We want to help people grow into the visionary leaders they need to be to elevate IT in the business.”
In a recent interview about the urgency to address this growing IT leadership skills shortage, Erica shared some background on The TechLX leadership journey, the ins and outs of the experience, and what’s next in technology leadership development.
