The CIO role is safe and sound
CIOs get stronger by continually having to prove themselves, as Mark Samuels discovers...
But here's the rub: smart CIOs have already become stronger for the process they've been through. Being challenged to prove their relevance has helped CIOs recognise that great leadership is about avoiding the day-to-day details of operational IT.
If your users want to experiment with new IT services, find a way to let them. If they want to use their own devices, find a way to let them. The modern CIO embraces change and openness, and recognises the IT leader role should enable, rather than control.
