Creating and maintaining digital policies is, by nature, a team endeavor. After all, it’s hard to think of a single aspect of modern business that hasn’t been impacted — if not completely disrupted — by the digital revolution. So coming up with policies that make sense and will actually be used requires input from many functional areas.
Somebody, however, has to be the owner. Someone has to lead the effort. Frequently, that role falls defacto to the CIO as head of IT. But can the CIO own digital policy?
Read my thoughts on the changing role of the CIO and whether this is the appropriate place to seat digital policy stewardship. As always, I enjoy a good dialogue on the subject, or different views. Feel free to get in touch.
