MindTree Consulting Launches CIO Toolkit

Leading IT Company Introduces New Services and Methodologies for Leadership

NEW JERSEY & Chennai, October 18, 2005 - MindTree Consulting, the international IT services company, today announced the launch of its "CIO Toolkit," an innovative service suite for CIOs of leading organizations. The new collection of intense workshop sessions will help CIOs better handle leadership challenges by leveraging highly effective training and development modules, rigorous methodologies, and advanced technology solutions.

"The CIO Toolkit addresses the crucial needs of today’s CIOs," says Subroto Bagchi, COO of MindTree Consulting. "The role of the Chief Information Officer in the past two decades has experienced paradigm shifts, especially as technology grows in strategic importance within an organization. A CIO’s success is no longer based solely on technical competency, but increasingly so on an ability to lead, innovate and manage."

MindTree has worked with a number of leading organizations including IATA, Emirates Airlines, Volvo and Burger King who have successfully completed a few Toolkit sessions.

"It is wonderful to see the changes in companies who have participated in the Toolkit sessions," says Subroto. "Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants, we anticipate more companies will take advantage of the Toolkit in the coming months."

Key components of the Toolkit include:
• Visioning for the IT organization: Designed to better equip new CIOs to create a shared vision with their teams.
• CTO to CIO Speak: An intense briefing session on Application, Technology and Deployment Trends.
• Building a Process Roadmap for the CIO organization: Targeted for CIOs and senior IT leaders to create better maps and plans for success.
• Building a Knowledge Roadmap for the Organization: Enables CIOs to leverage Knowledge Management to become thought leaders instead of implementers.
• Consulting 101: Trains CIOs and their teams on how to become "internal consultants" allowing them to "dis-intermediate" the technology value chain and create increased value for internal and external shareholders.
• From Managing to Leading: For people in IT environments who aim to lead teams, technology complexity and rain-making as opposed to only managing such facets.
• IT Competency Assessment Center: Allows transformation of the CIO organization through competency assessments, gap analysis and robust staffing strategies. In addition, the session helps empower CIOs to design roadmaps for long-term competency development.
