If organizations are to exploit technology to deliver real business value, they need to take brisk and purposeful action, because competition is fierce. However, it needs to be the right action and in the right direction.
Creative CIOs are visionary—inspiredby the potential opportunities of new technology, but also maintain a firm grip on the realities of the big business picture. They can balance and accommodate the demand for innovation, while keeping the wheels turning with existing customers and processes.
This paper explores how CIOs can become evangelists for innovation in the C-suite:
- focus on your business
- think it through
- embrace your customers
- learn from examples
- invest in relevant digital skills
- understand your strengths
- and build the right relationships.
