10 New Year's Resolutions for CIOs

By Dennis McCafferty  |  Posted 01-13-2014 Email

If an underlying theme has emerged throughout many of the slideshow features we've presented on CIO Insight, it's that CIOs must take charge as strategic leaders within their organizations, as opposed to simply the tech boss. The former lends insights which elevate company performance, increase productivity and efficiency, augment customer engagement, and ultimately contribute significantly to their company's ROI. As for the latter? Well, it's an outdated impression of CIOs which confines their role to the most mundane and least rewarding of IT tasks. So to continue providing both research and, we hope, wisdom to further inspire you to maximize your value, here are 10 New Year's resolutions for CIOs. Even better, we've backed each one up with research that we've reported on over the past year. Sure, a New Year's resolution can seem hokey on a surface level, but continuous improvement should always remain a primary objective. And—unlike resolutions requiring an arduous commitment to physical exercise and proper diet—these objectives are within your reach.
