This campaign aims to discuss the measures private and public sector organisations need to pursue to deliver the IT leaders of the future

This campaign aims to discuss the measures private and public sector organisations need to pursue to deliver the IT leaders of the future.

We hope to help these organisations become the most instrumental and reputable in the world, in the face of globalisation and a challenging economic climate.

The debate will focus on the technical and managerial skills needed to become a CIO and the available opportunities in the industry.

The campaign aims to gather opinion and information on current initiatives from the people who are expert in what it takes to be an IT leader. This includes the present generation of senior CIOs, as well as specialist bodies.

The debate will include a study on how the education system could be improved to support students in becoming interested in entering the IT profession.

The idea is to help reignite demand for IT education and training among young people through schemes such as apprenticeships, and the skills these budding IT leaders need to focus on, in order to ensure the continued success of the UK's IT industry.

The intention is to use the views of experts to influence key stakeholders to help ensure UK IT is able to develop the leaders of the future.
