CIO Edge 2020 | Melbourne

Twice a year, spend two days collaborating with 380 CIOs responsible for >50% of Australia’s GDP.


The challenge

While everyone tries to reinvent as a “Digital Business” and compete on experience, technology is rightfully centre stage.

Future focused companies are harnessing new tools and processes, optimising their workforce, rethinking business models, and starting to accelerate through customer experience and advantage.

The realities for others however are huge challenges around legacy processes, people and systems, shadow IT, cloud and application sprawl – delivering governance, compliance, security – and the role of technology to be enabler, not inhibitor.


Our CIOs own the end to end of this complexity.

As IT leader, the CIO is at the cutting edge of our ability to compete. Responsible for strategy, trust and user uptake; for managing multiple stakeholders and bringing everyone along on that journey.

Depending on the internal perception of the CIO and IT, they have a pivotal, tough and lonely role. They need a safe place to collaborate.

Twice a year they find that at ADAPT’s CIO Edge. Established over 8 years, gathering over 350 Australian and NZ CIOs across February and September, and proven as a valuable and intimate networking platform for the local IT community to engage.

ADAPT’s mission is to equip IT leaders with the skills they need to secure a seat at the table – with more technologists at the Board, Australia will see greater progress.


The 12 Core Competencies for Success

As CIO, you must have the right answers – but we live at hyper speed, with such little time to think, and even less room for error. Your challenge is how to catch up and keep up with so many emerging tech and external market forces, whilst managing internal politics, processes, projects and stakeholders – and all at the unrelenting speed of modern business.

After deep analysis of local executive drivers and challenges gathered from 30,000 conversations over 3 years, ADAPT have identified a framework of ‘The 12 core competencies’. When achieved, these areas of expertise will see the CIO move from reactive IT service delivery to strategic leader.

February’s CIO Edge agenda will underwrite what you need to drive organisational value, write and execute the best strategy, improve the perception of IT, and lead an efficiently automated data driven business.

With signature keynotes from MIT’s Peter Weill on the 4 pathways to execute on digital, and Harvard University’s Dr Mark Esposito on AI, Systems Thinking and Complexity – ADAPT expect one of our finest gatherings to kick off 2020.
