If the CIO is buried in the operational out of comfort of the known, who is now accountable for innovation?
It is rare now to speak to the CIO. A 180 from just 1 year ago. The average CIO is now running people and departments. They seem to be in some sort of ugly rut.
Who now leads with innovation? The IT Department heads cannot execute anything without the CIO. So how does the Technology Dept grow? How do they learn? What is new and special about the team or department?
By the way....Is there no wonder now why there are no more IT jobs out there?
