The CIO agenda for the next 12 months: Six make or break priorities

I really like this article. So much of what you see written about CIO activities is either way in the weeds of implementation or stunningly dull strategy statements. I think this article aims just right. And picks out areas that matter. A lot.

Detailed conversations with dozens of CIOs and CEOs over the past year as well as analysis of recent research have highlighted how the IT mission is both changing and needs to change. Large incumbent companies are looking to technology to be as dynamic a force in their business as it is in so many of the start-ups that are reshaping how people work, shop, communicate, make decisions, and live. The clear implication is that CIOs need to make the leap from tech leader to business driver, and the actions they take in the next 12 months will largely determine whether their business can meet its aspirations.
