The Morning Download: CIOs Get No Respect

Except from the article:
Good morning. If you have a sneaking suspicion that people are making decisions behind your back, the good news is you’re not being paranoid.

This goes a long way towards explaining why so many CIO jobs are advertised as strategic, but end up being largely operational.
Peter High, president of Metis Strategy, a CIO advisory, says the survey is “emblematic of the CIO’s dilemma,” and reflects the extent to which CIOs are under-appreciated by the rest of the executive suite. High says CIOs can change this perception by leading conversations about how IT can support initiatives for human resources, legal and compliance and marketing departments.
