Bridging the Gap between the CIO and the Board – report

This report examines the relationship between the CIO and the board:  how it has evolved over the past 30 years; what factors have contributed to the disconnect (and disillusionment) we see today; and what can be done about it, including practical steps that directors and boards can take to forge a more productive relationship.  Our recommendations for bridging the gap span five key areas of engagement between the board and the CIO:  strategic alignment, reputation protection, value realisation, compliance and succession planning.
