The other night I was chatting with a friend about the archetype of business-focused technology innovator – creative, business-smart, technology-savvy, dot-connector, influencer, and transformation leader. You know, the type of person every organization needs, but doesn’t always know how to find one, or (worse) what to do with.
Anyway, during our conversation, we were chatting about this archetype versus org chart positions or hiring reqs. Depending on the organization, a person of this ilk might be found in (or qualified for) one of several slots, from CIO to senior technician.
So, I’m curious, in respect to enterprise or government IT, what role in your organization is the primary source of business-focused technology innovation? Please note your response on the following poll. Thanks!
