What's the #1 challenge that frustrates Colorado CIOs?

Recruiting top technical talent. 

In the last CIO Forum participants had a lively discussion on the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities of doing IT in Colorado, but many questions still remain, such as: 

• How can businesses retain, attract and hire technical talent?

• How can I leverage my current technical staff to entice K-12 to pursue math and science to build a talent pipeline?

• How do I create technical talent from less technical new hires?

• What can CIOs do to partner with schools? 

Don’t miss the next CIO peer to peer forum on April 17, in which Frank Daidone, Director of IT at Chipotle, will lead a rich discussion on ways CIOs can help address these questions and many more with Project Kickoff, a new innovative approach where businesses can engage directly with students to inspire them to study technology.
