During the Midsize Enterprise Summit West Conference in Huntingon Beach, California, Peter High, President of Metis Strategy, conducted a video interview with organizers of the event on the changing role of the CIO.

In this video interview , Peter talks about:

  • The changing role of the CIO
  • The 5 Principles of World Class IT
  • How CIOs can better their business relationship with the CEO and why CIOs should not only be involved in company processes, but should be the center of the processes

An attendee from the event summarized Peter’s talk in a blog post to UBM Channel’s ExecITConnect, an online community for IT executives.
