Scott Shuster - ABC News foreign correspondent. Producer of NPR's All Things Considered. Consulting Editor, The McGraw-Hill Companies and BusinessWeek. Scott's remarkable background and prodigious skills onstage make him the right choice to serve as moderator to the CIOpanel.
Scott Shuster has led virtually every BusinessWeek CEO, CFO, and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine's events group -- more than 100 of the world's most prominent gatherings of large-company leaders and senior executives.
The CIOpanel has been a staple ingredient of CIOsynergy since its inception 4 yrs ago. Here we pick 5 CIOs who have demonstrated operational excellence within the organization they serve. We look to these CIOs for guidance on what challenges they are facing, what technologies have they adopted over the past year that have elevated and morphed the operating platform of their businesses, and what are their lessons learned.
Are they innovating, divesting, or securing? We will find out on January 31st with the help of the CIOpanel.
