The following tips for CIO's wishing to raise their profile were gathered by CIO Magazine at their "CIO Perspectives Forum" in Washington, DC in October 2010:
- Measure and explain what IT does
- Address structural constraints
- Keep your customers in the loop
- Form long-term relationships
- Lead change
If I was asked how DCG spends it's time helping client CIOs, this is about as good a summary as I could come up with.
