A “New IT Manifesto”
The whole IT industry has been talking for a while about the need for IT and business goal integration, so I don’t know how new it is, but this entry from Global CIO discusses the blazing career paths of CIOs choosing to be more customer-centric and less PC-centric. The blog entry is inspired by a document called The New IT Manifesto and champions CIOs who are breaking down barriers against innovation and growth catalysed by IT solutions through changing their traditional company roles. Basically – more business process efficiency and less purely defensive support and crisis management roles under the thumb of the CFO.
The blog post is a decent read for IT execs and anyone in the department who ever hopes to be one. Check it out here at the Global CIO/Information Week Web site.
