The CIO Role Is Changing

CIOs must become digital change agents for their organization

The pace of digital change will never be this slow again

To keep pace with digitalization and technological innovation, CIOs must reshape their role from delivery executive to business executive. They must help their organizations move beyond digital experimentation and pilots, and bring digital best practices to scale.

“CIOs need to become better storytellers to become better persuaders. Businesspeople need to see the value and results in compelling ways, not be told too much detail.”

Bruce Robertson

Vice President and Distingushed Analyst
