CIOs Have A Role To Play On Corporate Boards, 14.7.05


The perception of CIOs is evolving from managers of back-office systems to executives with knowledge of business processes.

While very few CIOs sit on the boards of directors of the world's largest companies, 75% of global executives believe CIOs have a role to play on those boards, according to a new study released this week by executive search firm Korn/Ferry International.

The online survey of more than 2,000 executives, in a number of top-level positions from a variety of industries, found that 46% believe CIOs 'absolutely' have a role to play on a company's board of directors, and 29% say they 'somewhat' believe CIOs have a role to play on such boards. Only 3% say 'not at all' when asked whether they believe CIOs have a role to play on the board.


It's likely that more CIOs will be seriously considered for board membership as the perception of their role evolves from that of managers focused primarily on regulatory compliance, back-end operations like E-mail and document storage, and administration, to that of executives who understand business processes and the competitive environment and who provide companies with a competitive advantage, says Richard Spitz, global managing director of Korn/Ferry's Technology Market.

In the Korn/Ferry online survey,

  • 96% of executives say they believe technology has improved efficiency at their companies.
  • 34% of executives say they're "highly likely" to consider working for a technology company in their next job, and 33% say they're "likely" to.
  • 51% of the executives say they thought technology spending in the current economy was beginning to improve, while twenty-eight percent think it appears to be relatively stable.
  • 62% of the executives believe the technology industry is fully recovered from the dot-com recession "somewhat," 9% believe it "fully," 13% are "neutral" on the question, 14% don't believe it "much," and 2% don't believe it "at all.

    "We shall need compromises in the days ahead, to be sure. But these will be, or should be, compromises of issues, not principles. We can compromise our political positions, but not ourselves. We can resolve the clash of interests without conceding our ideals. And even the necessity for the right kind of compromise does not eliminate the need for those idealists and reformers who keep our compromises moving ahead, who prevent all political situations from meeting the description supplied by Shaw: "smirched with compromise, rotted with opportunism, mildewed by expedience, stretched out of shape with wirepulling and putrefied with permeation.
    Compromise need not mean cowardice. .."

    John Fitzgerald Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"
