Fire yourself as CIO to become a digital business leader

Graham Waller | June 6, 2017
If you want to become a digital business leader, you need to fire yourself from your CIO role by delegating day-to-day operations to a COO of the IT organisation and embrace your leadership role in digital business completely.


3. Build credibility by producing steady results

Digital business starts as an intangible vision. Making it a reality is hard. The organisation will run into obstacles - promising ideas fail, the rest of the organisation resists, risk managers raise concerns and so on. At every obstacle, people will want to give up.

Digital business needs momentum to carry it over these hurdles. A leader earns trust and supplies that momentum through commitment; moving forward despite uncertainties; applying experience in a new context; being there for the team and, above all else, delivering a steady stream of results.
