2008 (English)In: ECMLG 2008: 4TH EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON MANAGEMENT, LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE, NR READING: ACAD CONFERENCES LTD , 2008, 61-68 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The role of Chief of Information Officer has dramatically changed during the last years from a purely technical guy toward a strategic managerial role in the company. CIO is expected to create innovative solutions to increase the profit, to reduce the costs and to contribute in important managerial decisions. This is a position development for the role of CIO from an IT technical guy to a new role as IT leader. During this promotion there are some internal politics inside the companies that a CIO should conquer to achieve his right position. He needs different personal developments and skill developments including learning and applying power game techniques. We want to study the best practices in this area for this new leader.
