The Future CIO: From Computer Scientist to Visual Artist

Serjeantson, Kirk (2017) The Future CIO: From Computer Scientist to Visual Artist. [MRP]

Item Type: MRP
Creators: Serjeantson, Kirk
Abstract:

The idea for this MRP was developed with the knowledge that technology is rapidly advancing along with it, information technology leadership needs to adapt as well. Many articles have been written on the need for enhanced IT leadership but remain focused on elements such as team development, communication and corporate partnership. After reading several articles I felt information was lacking on more drastic needs of IT leadership evolution. Through literature reviews an assessment of the current trajectory of the CIO in comparison with the Canadian economy highlighted a gap between trajectory and expectations. A series of CIO interviews were conducted to research further into the priorities of the Canadian CIO in six industries; Finance, Retail, Construction, Transportation, Healthcare and Manufacturing. These interviews were also designed to understand existing technological challenges and future concerns. The output of the research conducted was the Canadian CIO needs to change more aggressively to meet the changing technological environment. The Canadian CIO needs to become much more creative and innovative to meet the challenges of global competition.
