Enablement: This is where a more operational focus starts to give way to something more strategic in nature – from improving business decisions by acting as an information broker to proactively enhancing business processes.
Development: At the highest level, CIOs are called upon to help develop the business further. From delivering business transformation through to introducing business model innovation, this can be the most rewarding part of the job.
