CIOs boost their careers doing double duty

Julia King | Sept. 1, 2015
Many CIOs find it exhilarating to take on business functions outside of IT. But CIO-plus roles require a new mindset and trusted deputies.

Opportunities outside of IT also can become a bigger and more common part of career development in organizations with CIO-plus executives.

“I think before I took on the dual role, there had been exactly zero talent migration from IT to product development,” says Capone of his tenure at ADP. “By the time I left, 50 to 75 people had crossed over.”

As for the top tech position, Capone says, “without a doubt, the traditional CIO role eventually gets blended away as IT becomes more integral to everything going on. CIO is no longer a destination job.”
