The Deloitte CIO Survey 2015 

The second edition of the Deloitte CIO Survey report presents the findings from our 2014 global survey, this year with responses from over 900 CIOs, from all major industry groups in 49 countries around the world.

Our 2015 report explores how CIOs deliver value and prepare for what comes next. Despite our initial hypothesis, we found no significant differences across industries, geographies and company size in how CIOs delivered value. Instead we discovered that CIOs deliver value by adopting one of three behaviour patterns: trusted operator, change instigator or business co-creator.

What's covered?

  • Framing the CIO legacy: the survey shows how the four framing elements that are business priorities, leadership and talent, relationship and technology investment shape the context in which CIOs deliver value today and tomorrow.
  • Sculpting your CIO legacy: which CIO are you? We identified three distinctive patterns based on how CIOs navigate the framing environment.
  • Navigating the legacy landscape: No matter what pattern you fall into, it’s crucial to adapt your approach to changing business circumstances, adjusting the way you interact with peers and the business based on your time and place.
  • CIO legacy as both art and science: Participating CIOs gives their candid views on their personal passions and motivations to do their job.
