CIOs in Transition

leave a comment »


I started a linkedin page “CIOs in Transition”.  The idea was to help CIOs network with their peers and exchange ideas and leads to help them locate the position that best met their interests and needs.  I realize that I had made an unintended mistake, which in fact turns out to be good.

While the interest was to help CIOs who are looking for a job, there are also CIOs who are employed but are in transition.  They are reinventing themselves from the back office to the front office.  As a CIO who just made the transition, I feel that the best way to transform the role of the CIO is to first, take care of business, i.e., run the IT as a business very effectively.  Second, take this expertise to other areas in the enterprise such as operations and marketing.  Finally, help enterprise identify and implement strategies and foster innovation that lead to competitive advantages.  I truly welcome these CIOs to join the group as well.
