re: What CIOs Want In Their Successors
Great topic and very pertinent information for anyone trying to pursue any C level position. It makes sense that these are coming directly from current CIO's, that there right hand would become their successor. If you can find an employee who has the five skills pointed out in this article, that is one well rounded professional, who has most angles and areas covered. I think that the first one , multidimensional leaders, would be the most important, because well it is very important to know the technical side of business it is even more valuable when paired with management capabilities. That and experience accounts for a lot in the IT industry.
