Should CIOs be expected to initiate transformational IT change in an organization? There are two schools of thought for a CIO: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” versus “If you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backward.”
Many CIOs have staked their careers on making innovative and transformational changes – changes that fundamentally alter the trajectory of their companies in a competitive landscape. While the success of these initiatives may entail some risk for the organization and its champions of change, the results can be game-changing. Is it the job of a CIO to drive innovative initiatives and “move the business forward”. Or, is the role of a CIO to just “keep the lights on”? Is there any value in taking half steps forward?
