Re: priorities
Well noted that "CIOs need to function as business executives first, and technology subject matter experts second." Without a priority to manage the business well, things can go wildly wrong no matter what other expertise is put into play.

Re: priorities
Though you are right that it is an investment, CIOs need the financial chops to be able to demonstrate this to the CFOs. Some do, but many do not.

Re: priorities
IT is not a cost to contain. It is an investment. I know sometimes CFOs struggle to see the ROI. But technology is so crucial to the modern workplace. It's better to spend than be left in the dust by the competition if you ask me.

Absolutely, and that is something that anyone working in technology has to bear in mind when pitching for a shift in tech.
