Welcome to the MIT Sloan CIO Community

Join MIT academic leaders, digital technology executives and industry experts from around the world

2024 CIO Symposium

Our theme this year is The Goldilocks Paradox: Navigating Extremes in Your Digital Strategy.

The 2024 theme captures the essence of the challenges CIOs face in the current digital landscape, emphasizing the need for strategic navigation through the extremes of technological innovation and management. The concept of the Goldilocks paradox is used metaphorically to describe the optimal balance businesses must find in their digital transformation strategies — not too minor to be ineffective (too cold), not so aggressive that it causes disruption (too hot), but just right to be impactful and sustainable. Paradoxes to be explored could include Security vs. User Experience, Risk-Taking vs. Risk Aversion, or Cost Reduction vs. Growth.

The 2024 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium (May 14) will be an in-person event at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, Cambridge, MA. For the first time-ever, on May 13, the day before the CIO Symposium, will be packed with new opportunities to engage with the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium community. The afternoon agenda includes lunch, an inspirational talk, roundtable discussions on unresolved technology topics, and an Oxford style debate. After a break, you’ll return to a reception with the Innovation Showcase finalists followed by the CIO Leadership Award dinner. We hope you will join us.

Our attendees are senior level IT decision makers. In 2022, 73% were involved in purchasing decisions for IT projects, products, and platforms; 68% were Senior Executives; 38% came from companies with revenue over $500M; and 21% came from 29 countries outside of the United States. Also, 88% were satisfied or very satisfied with the event resulting in a net promoter score (NPS) of 63, the highest for the past 6 years.
