The new CIO: insights from the Center for CIO Leadership: An interview with Harvey Koeppel, Executive Director, Center for CIO Leadership
The Center for CIO Leadership is a very new organization, the mission of which is to advance the profession of the CIO and establish a global CIO community. The Center is achieving that mission through a combination of thought leadership, research, education and outreach. These are the four major tenets of the Center. The Center is a non-profit organization that is creating an active community of CIOs that can interact with each other and engage in a dialogue. The Center serves to facilitate that dialogue and is completely driven by the CIOs' priorities, which have been determined through both the primary and the secondary research done by the Center. But, most important, the Center is focused on understanding the skills and competencies of the new CIO and looking at what those skills and competencies are when compared to the current individual skills and competencies of incumbent CIOs and their teams.
