The UC IT Leadership, Innovation and Collaboration Program was launched in 2015 by CIO Tom Andriola in partnership with the UC IT Leadership Council and the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. The purpose of the program is to develop a cohort of emerging IT leaders each year from across the system and give them the opportunity to:
- receive the best content in strategic leadership, innovation, and change management,
- interact with peers from across the system and build the relationships necessary for collaboration, and
- prepare them to guide staff through IT challenges and opportunities ahead.
The program consists of two 3-day sessions, several months apart. Eligible candidates demonstrate a strong performance and leadership record, want to support collaboration across locations, and are one or two levels from a CIO position.
Participants are nominated by their CIOs. Several slots are also available for individuals who wish to submit an application to be considered for participation. The form for the upcoming cohort should be submitted by September 30, 2016, to Tom Andriola and Yvonne Tevis.
