"Innovation is all about people, about leadership: it's about the CIO
of the future, the Chief Innovation Officer," Solis said. "Our
methodology will enable the CIO to gain decisive action from his or
her management team and align with business peers so that growth and
results are attained in reasonable timeframes."  
"Our CIO members sit at the helm of constant technology disruption
and will walk away from this workshop with a tailored action plan to
accelerate their personal innovation development," said Stenson.
