Next Generation CIO

As part of a new report on Grooming the 2010 CIO from the Society for Information Management they have identified 7 key roles successful CIO's assume in the enterprise today.

  • Utility Provider
  • Information Steward
  • Educator
  • Integrator
  • Relationship Architect
  • Strategist
  • Leader
In addition to the above roles, I believe that there are mental aspects to CIO success:
  1. Think like a child (Creativity)
  2. Stay Malleable (Flexibility)
  3. Act Like a Startup (everything from how you budget, find and allocate resources, to keeping a laser like focus on milestones)
