A 2 day course held at venues across the UK.
The term CIO, or Chief Information Officer, is used in technology-dependant organisations for the executive who is accountable for the management and delivery of business systems, technology and information. It is often seen as a hybrid role, combined with areas of responsibility such as business process and change management.
It is the CIO's job to innovate, collaborate, balance the IT budget and motivate IT staff. The position differs from an IT Director or traditional IT Manager because it carries Board level accountability, often accompanied with a wide influence over internal issues.
With this in mind, the ‘Role of the Chief Information Officer’ course is designed to equip you with the tools and knowledge to perform this important new role. Through attendance, you will learn how to engage with the wider corporate aims of the organisation, ensuring that strategies are aligned to the new technological opportunities and realities of modern company IT practice.
No upcoming courses available.
Attendance on the ‘Role of the Chief Information Officer’ will help you become a future leader, providing the knowledge and skills to develop, implement and proactively lead and manage your organisation’s digital transformation.

- develop and implement a company’s IT and digital strategies and policies, including objectives and strategies for the IT department
- select and implement suitable technologies to streamline all internal operations and help optimise strategic benefits

All the trainers were very engaging and allowed time for us to all discuss our industries, experience and any ideas that we might have. I found this time extremely useful as I was able to build new ideas that I will take back upon my return. I really liked the practical exercises, it was a really insightful course that I thoroughly enjoyed.
