Become a Superhero to your CIO

Business Case:
In today's hyper-competitive world, we're all striving to be the best employees we can be. We want to impress our boss, finish that big project on-time and under-budget, and earn that big promotion with a hefty raise. If you work in IT, it's very likely you report - directly or indirectly - to your company's CIO, or perhaps CTO. How can we best enhance and leverage that relationship to support your company's IT initiatives, and advance your career?

The first step is to understand your CIO's role. The role of the CIO or CTO may seem mysterious and overwhelming at first, but it's critical for all IT employees to understand the big picture in order to better support your boss, and become a superhero to your CIO! We'll cover:
  • What is your CIO responsible for? We'll discuss the practical elements as well as the strategic decisions of the job
  • What does a day in the life of your CIO look like?
  • What are the differences between a CIO and CTO?
  • Who does your CIO communicate with? Who is he or she responsible to, and for what?
  • What pressures does your CIO deal with every day, and from whom?
Once we understand the role of the CIO better, it's time to turn our attention to being the best employee and asset to your CIO you possibly can be. But how? What if I told you that the secrets to being the ideal employee aren't secrets after all? That you've known them for a very long time... since kindergarten! Remember when you learned to always be kind, play fair, and say thank you? Those life lessons still apply today! We'll cover these and other timeless bits of wisdom you learned as a child, to make you the ultimate superhero to your CIO!
