Digital leadership: do CIOs have it in them?
"All of a sudden, businesses are seeking 'digital innovation'; CIOs are being asked to draft 'digital strategies'; the IT skills gap has morphed into a 'digital skills crisis'; and everyone is looking for 'digital leadership'.
There is, of course, no concrete meaning of 'digital', as it is used in this context. But the term is usually used to describe web-based technologies, social media and mobile.
Sceptics might argue that these are simply the ‘cool’ bits of IT. CEOs don’t want to read about their company’s data centre procurement or content management strategy: they want to hear about mobile apps and Twitter followers.”
