Info-Tech’s survey results confirm several areas where the most effective IT leaders spend less time. They avoid taking on work they could otherwise delegate, steer clear of becoming a project manager, and let staff manage the bulk of vendor relationships.
This practice gives them the time to:
- Focus on corporate and technology strategy.
- Treat the business as a business partner.
- Manage the project portfolio.
- Ensure operational quality.
This research uses an ongoing example, following and comparing a day-in-the-life of two CIOs with different levels of effectiveness.
