Topic: : Top Competencies of the Modern CIO
'Communication,' 'business acumen,' and 'relationship building' are all familiar entries on every 'Top CIO Skills' list ever written. While these attributes continue to be important in our current climate of risk, innovation and IT opportunity, they are just a drop in the bucket. In an era where technology belongs to everyone, the CIO must have so much more. In this newly updated presentation, Martha Heller, an IT executive recruiter and author of The CIO Paradox and Be the Business: CIOs in the New Era of IT presents a list of new skills critical to any CIO working today. Drawing on personal interviews with hundreds of 400 successful CIOs, Heller, a master storyteller, offers case studies, anecdotes, advice and impressions to arm attendees with the skills they need to bring their companies into the future.
