Track Themes

Make Technology A Strategic Differentiator
This track will help shape your approach to differentiating your business and creating new market value through technology. The key is balancing the right technologies, capabilities, and partnerships with your company’s growth strategy. We will hone your approach with these three questions: What technologies deliver differentiation and drive growth? What critical capabilities must you own, but are not differentiating? What technologies and capabilities could partners deliver more effectively? By balancing investments across these three elements using a clear framework, you will double down on the return and heighten the significance of your technology strategy.

Lead A High-Performing Team
Talent challenges will persist with us through 2023 and into 2024. Recruiting and hiring aside, enabling new employees or the ones you already have to operate at their highest level is the gap that you have the power to close. But only if you are capable of modern leadership, a style that is responsive to never-ending change, puts human excellence at the center of the team and organizational culture, uses empathetic and practiced listening to coach people forward, and is embedded in a cross-department matrix that provides flexible and responsive support to each individual and team. In this track you will learn to lead a high-performing team in the most turbulent of times.

Turn Tech Debt Into High Yields Now And In The Future
With the demand for tech seemingly never ending, many tech issues fail to deliver what they promise due to unwieldy levels of technical debt. This issue is further magnified in today’s business climate where uncertainty is leading to constraints. The moment we are in then provides for a great opportunity to optimize your technical debt and reinvest the benefits into new investments that drive differentiation. In this track, attendees will learn to assess your current position and then make great decisions to redeploy your assets to create a  high-yielding and differentiating tech experience.

Fostering Resilience To Enable Creativity
In difficult economic times, companies strive for resilience. In doing so, many are inclined to hunker down to protect their investments and current state, seeking little to no change until they’ve weathered the storm. Industry leaders resist this conservative urge, believing that creativity will further their resilience as a business, and in turn, their resilience will help fuel their company’s creativity. This track will help your organization build a resilience framework to power your business’s creativity.

Power Your Business With Awesome Software
Software is a powerful expression of business. Forrester will help you shape a software strategy that is pragmatic, connected, and innovative. Learn about the intersection of low-code and DevOps; how to leverage Kubernetes for innovation, using a “minimal viable security” approach to building software; and when to build versus buy, customize versus compose.
