Posted by Tim Sheedy on December 21, 2009
In September this year (2009) I was invited to New York City by IBM to preview their soon to be released CIO study. Very soon after my return home I wrote up an insightful, relevant, and actionable blog post on what I learned at the event. Of course you are going to have to take my word on this, as for some reason I can't find it... It has disappeared into the ether (perhaps I didn't hit the "Save" button at the bottom of the page?). So, despite that fact that the study was released three months ago, I am going to redo my analysis of the study - although now that some local (Australian & Indian - sorry rest of Asia Pacific!) results have been released there is some more relevant information available.
Australian CIOs tend to err towards "Able Pragmatists" - which is no huge surprise. In fact I would suggest that this is probably the case for CIOs in many countries across Asia Pacific - apart from India of course (and probably parts of China). The Indian CIOs were focused on the other end of the same spectrum - being an insightful visionary (interestingly, the CIOs at low and high growth organisations in India had remarkably similar characteristics!).
