A lot of lip service is paid to the idea that IT leaders should act as strategic business partners. However, new IT leaders will have little influence unless they build credibility with business leadership first. Earning credibility enables new IT leaders to facilitate trust and support within the organization, to set and achieve strategic goals.

Info-Tech recently interviewed IT leaders – from managers to CIOs – on their transitions into IT leadership. Research findings show that building credibility with business leadership is a three-pronged effort, as described in this note.

Coverage includes:

  • How to forge close relationships with executives.
  • Demonstrating that you have the right knowledge base.
  • Proving that you’re about action and results.

Ensure that your strategies have weight so that you can become an agent of change in the organization.
