Chief A lot More Officers
Is this the end of new roles for the CIO? No. We are already and have been discussing roles from Chief Experience Officer, Chief Infrastructure Officer, Chief Intelligence Officer and Chief Innovation Officer apart from their regular roles as Chief Technology and Information Security Officers. As roles for the CIO get more complex and the line of reporting becomes deeper in the technology department, IT heads/CIO’s have tremendous work cut out for them to lead change and innovation in the enterprise. Whereas previously perhaps technology was only hardware or software led changes in the organization the role is now far more expansive and future CIO’s will have to remain adaptive to change as they become digital, innovation experts as well as data scientists and a whole lot more.
