The CIO’s new mission: Change agent
CIOs’ new mission, should they choose to accept it, is to contribute to corporate strategy and be a critical member of the leadership team. This mission is perilous, but of vital importance. It takes CIOs far beyond the familiar territory of technical expertise and into advocacy for new technology, supplementing technical know-how with soft skills. Everyone is depending on them, and it’s time to show that this mission is far from impossible. This interactive discussion asks leading change-agent CIOs to share their insights and journeys in making IT part of the strategic, boardroom-level conversation; how to influence and contribute to corporate strategy; and how to make an impact in modernizing if not future-proofing retail enterprises.
