Technologies—from cloud to AI to cybersecurity—are increasingly recognized as central to achieving business goals. But yet, CIOs pursuing cloud-based initiatives often lack the necessary support and buy-in because their CEOs and corporate boards may not understand cloud’s ability to drive business value. What does it take to translate the strategic capabilities of cloud into business-enabling investments? In this session, Steve Van Kuiken, the global leader of McKinsey Technology, will explain why gaining strategic consensus across the organization is crucial for technology success—and how CIOs should go about building it.
