A 6 part guide to unlocking the secrets of a successful CIO

The new era for Federal agency CIOs started in 2010 with the release of Vivek Kundra’s 25-Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal Information Technology Management. That was two years ago. The directives mark a shift in focus for federal CIOs. Evan McDonnell is the author of a new Appian report. The report is a 6 part guide to unlocking the secrets to being a successful CIO in 2012. McDonnell told Chris Dorobek on the DorobekINSIDER program how the guide works.

The SIX operating principles are:

  1.   Adopt “Business Ready Technology”
  2.   Move from “Best of Breed” to “One Platform, One Environment”
  3.   Scrap the Traditional Approach to Gathering Requirements and Writing RFPs
  4.   Focus on Flexibility, Not Just “Cloud”
  5.   Think “Lead the Receiver”
  6.   Begin with Mobile and Social in Mind
