Changing IT Leadership: Part 6 — IT as Viewed by LOB Executives

By: Serge FindlingVice President of Research, Digital Transformation


This IDC Perspective is part 6 of a multiple-part series that focuses on the digital transformation objectives with which IT organizations must align. This document explores the results of IDC's 2016 CIO Sentiment Survey and IDC's 2016 LOB Sentiment Survey to examine the importance of IT and business alignment in the digital transformation of the business. Given the dependence on both technology and information required for a successful transformation, CIOs must expand their role. This series of studies highlights the challenges inherent in the necessary continuous change in IT leadership.

These studies directly support CIOs and IT executives to:

  • Assess digital transformation challenges within their organizations and the CIO's opportunities to contribute
  • Look for strengths to leverage and weaknesses to mitigate
  • Develop the organizational competencies to connect people, processes, and strategies successfully

"There is a significant disconnect between IT leaders and LOB leaders, except for culture and morale: Everybody agrees it is at the lowest," says Serge Findling, vice president of research with the IT Executive Program (IEP).
