They say March comes in like a lion. Well, it brought work with it this year, a blessing in this economy.
One of the projects I’m working on is a magazine article about the challenges facing CIOs and CTOs in the current economic and business climate.
I’ve tapped some great minds who occupy these positions. But, as I look at the overall piece, I realize I need more.
More voices, more experiences, more examples of what those in charge of wrangling a company’s technology in today’s workplace are going through, and how that might be different from what they’ve experienced before.
The other thing I want to know is who, exactly, holds these positions. When it comes to the latest in technology, so much of what’s the latest and greatest is scattered in hard drives of young geeks across the country. But, CIOs and CTOs occupy the C-suite – positions traditionally held by those with the most tenure.
With the exception of the youth-led dot.coms, who holds these positions, and why?
If you or someone you know has CIO or CTO in his/her job title, I want to hear from you. I’m putting a call out to the network for anyone interested in becoming part of my article, or just giving me background info, to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And soon – I’m wrapping the piece up in the next few days.
Thanks! Now, back to work…
