CIO Insight: CIO Reporting Structure

Many, many moons ago, in my younger days as a Chief Information Officer, I reported directly to the Chief Financial Officer of my company.  For me, the reporting structure did not matter as I was just happy to have my first CIO role.  In fact, during the late 90’s the majority of CIOs reported in that fashion, and it was the norm.

Over the next 20 years or so, the reporting structure of the CIO was, and remains, an active topic of conversation as how to best influence change within an organization and gain that proverbial “seat at the table.”

The National CIO Review polled our exclusive CIO Professional Network to obtain the state of the CIO reporting structure.
