The Chief Information Officer (CIO) role has evolved from keeper of the infrastructure under the CFO, to an executive managing the organization’s information and sitting at the executive table. The CIO is the key strategic agent for the organizational use of technology and is the key agent in the creative-destructive process mediated by technology. Today technology is the single greatest factor in strategic change in a firm. The CIO is the executive best positioned to manage the creative-destructive power of technology and effect firm sustainability in the face of massive changes in markets. This course helps aspiring CIOs investigate this new and evolving role, using presentations, research and interviews of industry and public sector CIOs and CTOs as well as studying the market demands for CIOs and CTOs.
