Digital disruption is a real threat as well as an opportunity to many industries. In a recent MIT survey, board members estimated that 32% of their company’s revenues were under threat from digital disruption. Responding to, or taking advantage of, digital disruption typically necessitates a change in business model—therefore, the CEO and board need to be involved—but they need the CIO’s help. In recent years, MIT has worked with boards, CEOs and CIOs to learn how to deal with digital disruption. The moderator, Peter Weill, will share his experiences, complemented with MIT case studies and survey results, and will facilitate a conversation about how CIOs are helping their companies thrive in a digital economy.
