“I need a new CIO”
We regularly hear from senior business leaders about how dissatisfied they are with the performance of their “IT” and wouldn’t life be much better if they had a CIO who was innovative, delivered things on time and didn’t spend all the budget!
It’s no secret that over the past few years IT has been a “convenient” place to land the blame for failed projects and an organisations’ inability to drive innovation. After all, all this technical and data stuff that they do can’t be that difficult, can it?
Well frankly that’s just it, it is far from easy! We would argue that the role of the CIO is the most challenging, dynamic and fast-moving executive position which is consistently under-valued and the breadth and spread of complexity rarely fully understood.
