CIOs and other technology executives are constantly challenged to execute digital IT strategies, yet over half of digital initiatives lag CEO/leadership expectations.
The Gartner CIO Survey, which surveys more than 2,300 CIOs/IT executives, identifies four key actions CIOs can take to accelerate impact and scale digital dividends.
The 2023 CIO Agenda covers four key actions:
- Identify the type of financial impact the CEO wants and prioritize digital initiatives that support it.
- Create a visual metrics hierarchy to communicate the interdependencies across related initiatives.
- Contribute key IT talent to the business to catalyze a fusion team to accelerate prioritized digital initiatives.
- Engage talent from unconventional sources to progress lower-priority projects which indirectly impact financials.
