Build a Regular CEO IT Update Package

Be prepared for your most important meetings with your most important stakeholder.

CIO updates to the CEO are often ineffective due to:

  • Lack of a rigorous plan for how to deliver updates to the CEO.
  • Poor understanding of CEO expectations.
  • Inconsistent reporting and communication style, leading to gaps in understanding and alignment.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • The best report can be tailored when the CIO is aware of the CEO’s expectations with a minimal alignment gap.
  • Focus on the crucial initiatives and use the proper metrics to ensure that you meet your CEO’s expectations.
  • Don’t start from scratch: the PowerPoint deck should be a living document that is easy to customize for every update meeting with the CEO.

  • A better understanding of your relationship with your CEO and their expectations.
