CIO strategy in the face of challenges

​In the 2015 global CIO survey, we showed you a map for creating legacy, which we define as how technology leaders deliver lasting value to their organizations. Our key finding was that effective CIOs add value in three distinct patterns based on the needs of the business. Trusted operators ensure operational excellence, change instigators enable large business transformations, and business co-creators focus on revenue and growth. The 2016-17 global CIO survey report—Navigating Legacy—focuses on how CIOs can chart the journey between pattern types as they look to create their legacy.
