CIO Connect is an independent management consultancy that provides advice to technology and business leaders

We are dedicated to meeting your changing priorities – delivering rapid results through expert advice from our consultants and to connecting with a wide network of like-minded peers.

We have a special style to our work – many clients see us as a ‘critical friend’ tailoring our approach to helping the CIO achieve their personal and business objectives, rather than a consultant who imposes their own solutions.

We provide support to organisations tailored to their needs.

Some organisations gain benefit from our regular involvement in their organisation on an ongoing basis – perhaps being a member of their IT Governance Board, providing strategic advice for the CIO, their executive colleagues and the technology leadership team. Many organisations will have specific needs – requiring immediate results.

We find that the majority of our work is focused around transformation of the provision of technology services. Our consultants are ex CIOs and business leaders. They use a combination of their significant experience, their knowledge of applicable business models and the use of unique, robust and rigorous assessment tools that help analyse the readiness, scope and direction of transformation that is appropriate to your organisation.
