Late last year, Korn Ferry predicted that CDOs will be among the most in-demand C-level positions in 2015 and IDC predicted that by 2020, “60% of CIOs in global organizations will be supplanted by the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) for the delivery of IT-enabled products and digital services.”

Farid Mheir's curator insight, June 18, 2015 3:17 PM

CDOs are high level executives that work together or will replace CIOs in some cases.


WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Many organizations let CMOs drive the digital show or watch passively as the CIO tries to do something. Naming a CDO and making them high level executives - here a senior VP - gives them the power and the influence to imprint a digital transformation in the organization.

Key areas of focus for the early months of a CIO’s tenure should be:

  1. Understanding the impact of digital on every aspect of the business.
  2. Positioning oneself as the architect of innovation.
  3. Embracing the “We Economy” and understanding how to pull various internal and external pieces together into an effective digital ecosystem.
  4. Getting the IT team on board—with the right skills, and a solid understanding of the company’s current needs and future direction.

Hierarchical vs. Functional IT Org Charts
Some CIO’s instinctively understand the power of the IT org chart yet struggle to execute on their insight. The University of New Mexico might be a good example. UNM produces a hierarchical IT organization chart and a functional IT organization chart.

The hierarchical IT organization chart reflects the reporting structure. The functional IT organization chart reflects the traditional ownership and accountability orientation of IT functions.

Why the two IT org charts for UNM? I realize this is a fairly common practice but what is the benefit of the functional IT org chart? Presumably the IT department personnel know who does what and what manager owns which functions. So who is the intended audience?
