23 Oct To shine in digital economy, CIOs need passion, partnerships
IT leaders need to love what they do — and they need to know the business they’re in. That was the message from a career panel at the recent Gartner Symposium.
How did you get to CIO?
The answers are as varied as all of you are, rooted in different family backgrounds, different academic directions — I know you’re out there, creative writing majors — and the multifarious ways you’ve crisscrossed life’s highways and byways.
Probably though, most of you would agree with Daphne Jones, CIO for global services IT at GE Healthcare at the recent Gartner Symposium ITxpo in Orlando, Fla. You got there by doing your job well. And you’d also second Rafael Mena. You have passion for what you do.
