Existing at the intersection of a think tank, an analyst/research firm, trusted advisors and system developers, the Institute, through its network of Fellows, explores the impacts on companies and their leaders through the transition from the Industrial to the Digital Era.
Currently Senior Vice President of Consulting Services and Denver Metro Lead for IT and business consulting services firm CGI, Jeffress previously served in the government and private sectors, transforming organisations by developing business strategies, delivering significant returns on technology investments and orchestrating complex change initiatives.
In May 2020, in her role as Chief Information and Digital Officer at the City of Aurora, Colorado, Jeffress spoke to Technology Magazine about a process of systemic upgrades, modernising legacy systems and moving to the cloud.
A collaborative leader whose areas of expertise include strategic planning, business-technology alignment, talent development, culture change, technology procurement, and vendor management, Jeffress often shares her expertise and breadth of experience through speaking engagements, panel presentations, and board leadership on a wide variety of organisations including the Colorado Technology Association, American Heart Association, Women in Leadership, and software start-up interviewIA.
“Transformation is all around us,” says Jeffress. “As a former Chief Information Officer responsible for digital transformation and strategy, I’m honoured to join and contribute to an organisation focused on how to make others successful in their transformation journeys and careers. I appreciate the challenge today’s leaders face and look forward to assisting the larger digital transformation community.”
