Realising value from a CIO
Navigating the silicon ceiling
The role of the CIO within UK companies appears to be a source of divided opinion and considerable confusion. For many companies, the role and the issues surrounding its effective execution appear to be widely misunderstood. For a growing number, however, the role of the CIO – and information and technology more generally – are becoming recognised as critical to business performance and growth.
The new report, Realising value from a CIO - navigating the silicon ceiling, authored jointly by Deloitte and Cranfield School of Management, is based on research which examines the role of the CIO from a new perspective, drawing on the insights of CEOs, investors, analysts, consultants and industry commentators, as well as CIOs themselves. Designed to stand back from traditional approaches towards this topic, to explore the complex tangle of assumptions and misconceptions that surround the very concept of the CIO, we reveal;
- The CIO today
- Degree of clarity around the CIO role
- Why are there so few CIOs
- Factors affecting the CIO’s ability to deliver against expectation
- What next for the CIO
- How the role of the CIO evolve in the future?
By looking at the nature and dynamics of the role of the CIO, we show how organisations can successfully align the CIO role with their evolving business.
