This toolkit describes the resources available to IT chiefs of staff from the CEB CIO Leadership Council. We define the IT chief of staff as a direct report to the CIO with significant input into enterprise IT strategy. The role varies significantly in title, scope, and outlook, as it is usually created by the CIO to support the IT organization’s specific needs at that point in time. All chiefs of staff should use the tools in the first section to help them accelerate their performance.
