What is a Chief Tomorrow Officer?

The best way to predict the future is to invent it! That is why we at T-Systems listen to those to whom the #Future belongs. We listen to the #QuestionsForTomorrow that #GenZ are interested in and together we solve these questions to get ready for our Future. Find out more about the CTO Questions in this video.

What does a Chief Tomorrow Officer do?

Social Media Post about Chief Tomorrow Officers

Chief Tomorrow Officer is not a job in the traditional sense – we use it to describe a new generation of leaders who are positive, forward-thinking, and exert influence across divisions in the company. The job of a Chief Tomorrow Officer is to encourage employees to find new solutions by asking pressing and challenging questions. These questions have short-term relevance, but also lead to long-term change.

We believe in people who ask big questions that have the power to unlock the potential of the future.
