UKtech50: Stuart Birrell, CIO, McLarenDate: Dec 16, 2013
At Computer Weekly’s annual UKtech50 event, Stuart Birrell, CIO, McLaren discussed creating real partnerships to an audience of CIOs, industry executives, public servants and business leaders who are driving the creation of a high-tech economy.
Much has been talked about IT as a function that “enables the business”, but what does that mean in practice? As other business areas procure their own systems, bring their own equipment to work and drive tech-enabled innovation, what are the relationships CIOs need to form to position themselves as business partners? In this session, McLaren’s CIO Stuart Birrell talked about his own journey of transforming the IT department into a real enabler.
