WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) Business & Technology Leadership Forum 2008: Embrace Technology Chaos. Deliver Business Results.

An unprecedented onslaught of chaotic realities threatens to unravel the structure, predictability, and control that IT leaders have brought to the workplace over the past several years. Whether it is Web 2.0, the changing landscape of the workforce, marketing consolidation, or virtualization, IT leaders must be ready to face challenges directly, with an eye on their business, and deliver results.

Forrester’s Business & Technology Leadership Forum is designed to arm technology and business leaders — such as CIOs, Business & Process Applications professionals, Information & Knowledge Management professionals, Application Development & Program Management professionals, and Enterprise Architecture professionals — with emerging organizational, process, and technology practices that balance chaos and control, driving new business value without placing the organization at risk.
