The current economic climate is calling upon all executives to operate with an increasingly acute and sensitive approach to all aspects of business. While those who steer their respective companies value executives who can follow through and implement corporate programs and initiatives, the unstable nature of the times requires forward-thinking and visionary executives who operate and make decisions outside the vacuum of directives.
It is up to each and every CIO to seek out and take responsibility for the most cost-effective and productive IT systems and strategies in order to create opportunity out of an increasingly rocky landscape. IT has the power to transform and help businesses adapt to unusual circumstances and environments, where stagnancy will only cause future and enhanced financial downfalls. Quite frankly, IT is a game changer.
