Get closer to your business strategy. CIOs, CTOs and CFOs are long-term, strategic thinking people and always want to help their business succeed. Nonetheless, many CIOs struggle to align IT strategy with business strategy.
The reasons are often very different. Sometimes it is because they don’t have the tools to speak the language of finance, or present ideas in a business case that will be persuasive to the board. Other times CIOs need an outside perspective that can benchmark them against other organisations in their industry, or simply the CIO needs someone who can do the research, sift the real issues from passing trends and have a focused discussion on the practical options.
