Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Despite the importance of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) in creating organizational value using technology, little research has been undertaken to understand how to develop effective CIOs. This research-in-progress paper posits that challenging work experiences are more critical than tenure in developing the tacit knowledge necessary for success in this high level position. This paper also examines the role of career anchors, which refer to the CIO's self-perceived talents and motives, in providing a moderating effect on the value of the work experiences.
