Most CEOs know that digital transformation is vital to improve any organization’s efficiency, value and overall bottom line. But just how tech-savvy does a CEO really need to be to achieve digital transformation? The answer lies in the relationship between the c-suite and IT. Because today, a talented CEO must work closer with the CIO than ever before to succeed at digital transformation.
Long gone are the days when a CEO could downplay the need to accept and adopt new technology or consider it an unnecessary cost of doing business. In today’s competitive environment, CIOs are being elevated to crucial c-suite roles, and technology is no longer viewed as a sunken cost simply depleting precious resources but rather the key element in a successful digital transformation program.
To be truly successful, digital transformation necessitates c-suite cooperation, with CEOs and CIOs working together to facilitate collaborative strategies that will lead to operational change. However, implementing those strategies should not just be IT’s job. It’s a total team effort.
To that end, the smartest CEOs know that the most impactful role they can undertake in the process of digital transformation is building a competent team, and then providing encouragement, counsel and advice along the way. It’s not unusual for CEOs and CIOs to decide to bring aboard a partner or consultant to assist with this work.
