28 Sep Turning TechTalk Into BusinessSpeak [Ep.2]
Talking to the Board – a 3-part series
58% of the CEOs and board members Nemertes surveyed cited “failure to tie technology to business” as IT executives’ top weakness when speaking to the board. Nemertes’ Beth Boucher and Johna Till Johnson talk about the specific challenges of turning highly detailed technical information about topics such as cybersecurity into insights that are consumable by board members and non-technology senior execs. How do you convey the importance of an issue when “the devil is in the details”—and yet, board members don’t want to hear the fine print?
