Episode Summary

A modern CTO needs to be a tech-visionary, a fast learner who is driven to achieve market success. The role is becoming more nuanced and specialized as Paul Twigg, CTO NTT Data Services explains. Paul explores how today’s CTO keeps agility at the heart of all the business functions and roadmaps that follow.

Show Notes:

  1. The automation and data journey that most organizations are now embarking on put CTOs and companion roles at the heart of business innovation.
  2. An industry that is really struggling due to the pandemic is the hotel industry. Consultants and CTOs have thus recommended not implementing a 3-year roadmap and instead of being agile.
  3. An effective strategy either has to have change built into it or to have the ability to change,
  4. An effective strategy also has to have viable business outcomes and that only comes when an agile organization introduces proof of concepts and proof of values.
