Hub 1: Mission Modernization

Mission Modernization TechKnow Hub - Caffeine Round
In the Federal IT environment, we now have CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, CDOs, Chief Experience or Chief Customer Officers, etc. All of these functionaries talked about the criticality of “independence and authority” with a “seat at the table”. Some of them are actually formed from legislation, so they are statutorily set. But given that within a given agency they are all focused on the same mission set, operating out of the same budget and leveraging the same technical environment, how do they all co-exist? How do they establish a mutually beneficial relationship and operation? What are the pitfalls? What is the “secret sauce” for making them all work together toward a common outcome or purpose?
