Special Interest Group

Defining the CIO

 

 

CIOs have a problem: everybody has an opinion on the CIO Role and is not shy to express it. However, CIOs have a bigger problem: There is no clear, consistent, coherent, universally accepted definition of the CIO Role.

CIO Index wants to change it. Who better to define the CIO role than a community of CIOs? 

This Special Interest Group (SIG) has been formed to create a definition of the CIO Role and its responsibilities. This SIG will also define the CIO skills, experience, a roadmap or maturity model for the career progression, and a skills assessment framework. Huge undertaking! But with 60,000+ experts in our network, we should be able to get it done.
