What are the factors critical to the success of a CIO? How can a CIO consistently deliver business value? Do development teams, in general, and agile teams, in particular, understand how to contribute to this success? In this interactive presentation, Niel Nickolaisen presents the metrics and drivers that influence CIO behavior and longevity. These metrics and drivers also influence the organization's decision to embrace agile methods. Niel shares his experiences and the survey responses from his CIO peers on how development teams and CIOs can work hand-in-hand to make agile the preferred development method. Niel introduces and describes immediately-implementable, proven tools that dramatically improve IT and business value while reducing project risks.
