The gap between CIO Core Competencies and the real roles of CIOs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Our lives have become more convenient than before due to the advanced technology. We are blessed by the benefits of the information society. New industry has been developed by open data. Promotion of e-Government leads to cost reduction by utilizing cloud computing. On the other hand, by evolution of the information society, we expose ourselves to the threat of viruses and cyber-attack. Under these circumstances, CIOs are responsible for various competencies such as ICT strategies for e-Government, risk management, information assurance and cyber security, ICT budget, ICT investment and compliance. This paper analyzes the new trend of CIO's functions in the aspect of CIO Core Competencies. CIO Core Competencies were identified in the US in 1996. This paper prioritizes CIO Core Competencies and finds that there is a gap between the Core Competencies and real roles of CIOs. As a result CIOs do not play an effective role in their organizations. The methodology of this paper is data analysis of surveys done in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2014. The 2014 survey on the preferred Core Competencies was conducted in cooperation with George Mason University (GMU) in the US, one of the 6 CIO universities certified by the US Federal Government.
