“Good To Great” Theme Will Showcase Best-Of-The-Best IT Departments
TORONTO, ON – At less than a month after the 13th Annual International IT Service Management Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas that drew nearly 2,000 attendees, Pink Elephant today announced plans for the next conference, returning to the Bellagio from February 21-24, 2010.
The next event, themed Good To Great: How To Use ITIL & ITSM To Make The Leap, borrows from Jim Collins’ world-renowned best selling business book, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t, that describes how companies transition from being average companies to great companies, and how some fail to succeed in that transition.
“More IT leaders than ever before will share key leadership, management, and business factors that have produced high performing IT teams, satisfied customers, and reduced costs,” says conference chair and Pink’s VP of Global Events, George Spalding. “This knowledge is critical now, as more companies are looking for ways to tackle the challenges of our economy. That’s why we have chosen a theme that is timely and appropriate.”
Recently, several of Pink’s long-standing customers, also past conference presenters, were featured in major industry articles, highlighting IT best practices as a business value-add.
- Allstate’s CIO, Catherine Brune, is featured in this Wall Street Journal article titled Shifting Priorities
- State Of North Carolina’s Deputy CIO, Bill Willis, is featured in Government Technology and has been listed as one of the Top 25 Doers, Dreamers & Drivers
- WestJet’s Ian Proctor and Liberty Mutual’s Steven Wrenn are featured in a Corporate Board Member article titled How Boards Can Make Sure IT Investments Pay Off
