The CDO: Transitional Leader or Leader in Transition?

The number of CDOs has grown dramatically in recent years, perhaps more so than any other executive position. Yet, the role itself is in transition. CDOs have traditionally focused on digital enablement of distribution channels. More recently, however, CDOs have taken on larger and more complex responsibilities.

CDOs are increasingly being asked to digitize entire value chains and business systems. They are often taking the lead on organizational transformation journeys. The pressures of doing this can be intense, and thus CDO turnover is high.

IMD’s CDO Roundtable is a learning and sharing event that enables you to connect with colleagues facing similar challenges. You can discuss the changing dynamics impacting you, your role, and your business in a safe and open environment (no consultants are allowed).

As a CDO, you are facing tremendous challenges with no clear playbook to draw from. Join us on September 20/21 to share with like-minded colleagues and hear the latest research from IMD’s Global Center for Digital Business Transformation, an IMD and Cisco initiative.

This event includes ample time for high level networking over a reception and formal dinner as well as a closing buffet lunch.
