#Innovation in IT…too Important to Leave to the Technologists | ChiefExecutive.net

Perspective on the “modern CIO” as the Chief “Integration” Officer where running IT as a business is no longer enough, it must be run “like” a business.

In Management Challenges for the 21st Century, legendary management thinker Peter F. Drucker wrote:

“Every organization needs one core competency – innovation.”

CIOs today have a key leadership role in driving innovation at their companies due to the integration of information technology throughout today’s modern business operations.

“There is no other C-suite role better positioned to drive value by working across business functions and operating units—integrating people, process and technologies in new and profitable ways.”
