Progressive enterprises leverage technology for business decisions. IT is a Technology intensive function and needs unique leadership.
Leadership helps in bridging the Business-IT divide and providing a strategic direction to IT.
There is a difference between a CIO and an IT Head. Many a time, we confuse between the two roles and end up with expectations mismatch.
CIOs provide strategic direction to IT, which includes:
Road map for Application and Infrastructure
Scalability aligned to business goals
Team organization and management
Skills up-gradation and business alignment
Driving business-sponsored technology projects
Nurturing a culture of innovation, agility and develop a partner ecosystem
Budgeting and eliminating deadwood, focus on cost optimization, not a reduction
