” I think the changing role is much more around CIOs now taking that give back of time, that reduced direct operational responsibility, and leveraging it to get closer to customers, get closer to revenue and figuring out how to add more value back to your business.” – Paul Chapman

Episode 27: The Future of Work

There is a massive shift underway as it pertains to how organizations work and think about work. Work itself, the workforce and the workplace are all evolving rapidly.  Because “technology and culture are inextricably linked” as our guest, Paul Chapman, CIO of Box, points out, the IT organization and IT leaders are crucial to the architecture and implementation of these changes.  Paul sits down with Jeff Ton, SVP of Product Development and Strategic Alliances, to share his experiences with creating a modern workplace or “taking the work out of work,” how he has fostered an ecosystem of partners and the ways he believes the role of CIO will shift in the next 3 to 5 years.
