The Chief Information Officer (CIO) plays a vital role in federal agencies. They are accountable for managing billions of dollars in IT spend, and the decisions they make impact how successful a business is in leveraging technology. To be truly effective, CIOs know they must keep the function running at its best. Yet, according to the US Government Accountability Office's (GAO’s) most recent figures, three-quarters of those who take up a CIO role are gone within three years. What gives? And how can these numbers spell success for either federal agencies or the individuals involved?
To help you navigate this complex terrain, we've used our vast experience, insights from working with federal agencies and commercial sectors, input from GAO’s survey report, and other metrics, to reveal the most common challenges CIOs face. We've also devised strategies for resolving these problems, keeping you at the top of your game.
