Earlier this year CIO Connect started an exclusive group for a series of top female IT executives. The aim is to bring leading women together to discuss how other females can be brought into information management and on to senior levels. HTTP://CANEXBACK.COM How and why this group started Last year at the CIO Connect Annual Conference, Barb Dossetter of CIO […]

We’re already in the digital world and its been driven by the business and our customers.

We have Leading Women in our industry. Make no mistake, we are there! But there's not enough of us …yet. In Singapore among many professions, 50% of the graduates are women. But somewhere between graduation and assuming a leadership role, many of us disappear from the career track. This has huge implications in so many different directions. Great leadership requires […]
And I am not talking about the Olympics! There is a great article in August 2012 Harvard Business Review based on research from MIT about the communications in really great teams. I like it particularly because it reminds me of arguments that I had with my (prior) partner about how he said things rather than what he actually said. You […]
I think we are about to live in ‘interesting times’ again. When I review some conversations over the last few months, Mergers and Acquisitions has come up as much as any of the conventional subjects. I hear it from both points of view, as the acquirer and the acquired. Both situations are not easy. Where the CIO gets a sense […]
I’m sitting here in sunny London (yes it really does shine here!) looking at the CIO Action Plan for 2011 that we produced as a result of last year’s Annual conference. The topic was Business as Unusual and we collated all of the great ideas from the conference into a series of questions that CIOs should ask themselves as they […]

Will Barnet and myself went to Dublin last Thursday…an interesting day to be in Dublin, but another subject, another blog. We hosted lunch for the members of CIO Connect and the subject was Enterprise Architecture but with a recognition of the current state of the economy. The role has really changed since the economic downturn. The EA role was an […]
Got your attention! We were talking about the need to be a radical leader at CIO Connects ‘Stepping Forward – How and when to be a Radical Leader’ event last night. The term has both positive and negative connotations. Mostly, as IT Leaders, we are seen as nerdy, staid, safe, detailed oriented and more words along the same line from […]
There was a time, in the good old days, when a CIO didn’t have to worry about contracts – boring things that the lawyers or the purchasing person takes care of. Not anymore. The implication of a failed contract can be a loss of reputation of all parties and perhaps an expensive, long winded and debilitating legal case, where all […]
Mergers and acquisitions are really exciting times. A new organisation to bring into the fold.
