I have spent the last 22 years of my life getting to know and supporting the careers and development of the teams that deliver enterprise applications across the Fortune 1000 in North America. I am an avid reader of books, articles, white papers, blogs, even press releases. While there are plenty of articles focused on interviewing technology leaders on the trends and the latest technologies’ impact on their industry and their company, usually underwritten by a product manufacturer or a software company, I have not seen a serious attempt to categorize and lay out what it takes to be a successful CIO. For my own interest and the interests of the next generation of technology professionals, I’ve set out to interview and garner insights from some of the most tenured CIO’s at America’s largest and well-known companies to understand the secrets to their success and their staying power. My goal is to understand what skills and attributes have enabled them to not only be successful as CIO of one company but be selected by more than one company as their technology leaders and hold those positions for well above the reported industry average of approximately 4.5 years.
