How to Enable CEO's to Lead IT Effectively: The Earth, the Sea, and the Mountain

Ken Pedersen, COO, Luna; Former CIO/IT Consultant

The CEO and the CIO are bound together in partnership by their common field of vision across the enterprise. The CIO serves as the execution architect and prime mover of information. The CEO acts as ultimate interpreter of business significance of that information. In its finest form, the two together build a virtuous loop that relates observation to possibility, and possibility to profitable outcomes.

Yet, most CEOs don't fully recognize the symbiotic potential of this relationship. And many CIOs don't nurture the relationship to its highest potential. In 'Enabling CEO Leadership: The Earth, the Sea, and the Mountain,' we show session participants how to re-envision their own role in equipping CEOs to lead IT effectively. We present three vital elements for delivering on that vision:

  • 'The Earth' -- How to communicate about the everyday physics of systems work in a way that makes CEOs better IT leaders.
  • 'The Sea' -- Leadership 'how-to's" for bridging the waters among often isolated department and divisional 'islands.'
  • 'The Mountain' -- How to activate 'Executive Imagination' by lifting the vision of CEOs to a higher place that maximizes CIO contribution.

    The CIO is part beacon of possibility, part focus-bringing lenscrafter. When paired with skilled CEO leadership, CIOs confirm their rightful place at the table as full-bodied participants in the management team.

How to Identify and Focus on Your Core IT Competencies

Jay Gleischman, CEO and Managing Partner, 4Gen Consulting LP

Delivering significant IT value to the enterprise requires a granular, streamlined approach. Decisions need to be made on what IT can do extremely well internally and when outside providers should come in to help support the operation. This is not an easy task.
