Cio role easier said than done l.jpg

CIO Role – Easier said than done

  • CIO’s have technical expertise in information and technology management, but also are leaders in management and organizational change

  • Serves as a critical member of senior management team – a trusted partner much like CFO, COO, etc.

  • CIOs needed to professionally develop and implement technology for an agency in a cost-effective way

  • Always a tension between centralized and decentralized technology development; between centralized authority versus business units – need both!

  • CIOs must be trusted and skilled in working within their organizations to effect change – therefore need support of agency head and senior management team

  • Electronic Government requires inter-agency collaboration and planning – this is a new role for CIOs
