Have You Got What It Takes to be a Six-Dimensional CIO?

dimensionsBeing a CIO is so tough that you now need to be able to transcend time and space to be successful at it. Mike Wright breaks the duties of the CIO down into six dimensions in a blog post for TechRepublic:

  1. Set the strategic context and direction for the IT function and help shape the overall direction of the company as a whole.
  2. Have effective project prioritization and reliable project delivery.
  3. Deliver operational stability and cost efficiency.
  4. Manage third parties and internal staff.
  5. Provide formal oversight of governance, cost control and risk management.
  6. Undertake other tasks as required by circumstance.

How the fundamental business is changing, where new technology impacts the company, and how outside advances stand to affect business as usual are all addressed in this way.
