Participants gain in-depth understanding of the role of the CIO in delivering business value and accountability to the organization
They learn how to manage the transition to membership in the senior executive team, to act with agility in decision-making, to identify the business drivers of IT support, to mitigate risk, to analyze key metrics for return on investment, and to understand the legal and contractual issues of outsourcing.

Praise from graduates
“The CIO Association of Canada is pleased to recommend the program to our members, many of whom have reaped its benefits.”

Andrew Dillane, President, CIO Association of Canada; Group CIO, Randstad Canada Companies


“ The IT Leadership Development Program is an excellent opportunity to learn from well-established, senior IT leaders whose insight, knowledge and experience really help put today’s IT challenges in perspective, and they offer both practical and theoretical solutions to meet those challenges. The program is also a great opportunity to network with fellow IT professionals and to share best practices with each other. I found the format provided the right pace in an ideal setting for a program of this nature. Each session delivered valuable

material that I was able to bring back and put into practice right away.”

Rick Coutts, Vice President, IT and Integration, TransCanada Pipelines Limited


“This is an excellent program for aspiring CIOs. I also recommend it to anyone who is relatively new to their CIO role or as a refresher for those who have been a CIO for a while. The program blends the right amount of theory with very practical tools and best practices. The instructors are top-notch and are all knowledgeable practitioners. I wish I had taken this program four years ago when I started my current CIO job.

It would have helped me significantly in implementing my agenda much more quickly. I plan to get all or most of my management team to take this program.”

Siegfried Fuchsbichler, Assistant Deputy Minister, Information and Communications Technology,Department of Highways and Public Works, and Chief Information Officer (CIO), Government of Yukon


“As a participant and a supporter of the IT Leadership Development Program — I’ve attended and had my own staff attend — I can’t recommend it highly enough. It uses current thinking and a widely varying faculty skill and experience set to deliver a compelling and practical educational experience.”

Michael Carpenter, Chief Information Officer (CIO), Information Management Branch, Government of British Columbia


“What more can I say – a great course given by some of the best IT practitioners in the world.”

Roman Mateyko, Executive Director, Regulatory Affairs, Government of British Columbia
