Executive Briefings

Come On! A Little Respect for the CIO, Please!

Spread the word: CIOs are in overdrive and are finally earning recognition as indispensable business visionaries. Their role in shaping business strategy marks a notable shift in responsibilities that's literally redefining what a CIO is. CIOs are increasingly being counted on to help business leaders--from CEOs to line-of-business (LOB) managers--make their companies more agile and customer-centric. Contributing to this trend is trust in technology and the IT department to aggressively transform the business. Other critical factors include a CEO who "gets it," a CIO with the well-rounded skills to be a trusted business leader, and a CIO who spends a good deal of time communicating with constituents--both internal and external customers.
