  • 3. Motivation for eLeadership and CIOs
  • 4. ICTs Strategic Role “After many years of rapid growth and demonstration of its tangible benefits, ICT is now accorded a “strategic” role in most economies. This prominence is bringing a greater level of scrutiny of technology infrastructure from various sections of society, as well as international organizations. Ereadiness will advance, but governments should take care to ensure that their countries’ digital development proceeds in harmony with their social, economic and political objectives.” - Economist Intelligence Unit in “eReadiness Rankings 2009 – The Usage Imperative”
  • 5. eGovernment “eGovernment is about using the tools and systems made possible by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to provide better public services to citizens and businesses. ICTs are already widely used by government bodies, just as in enterprises, but eGovernment involves much more than just the tools. Effective eGovernment also involves rethinking organizations and processes, and changing behavior so that public services are delivered more efficiently to the people that need to use them. Implemented well, eGovernment enables all citizens, enterprises and organizations to carry out their business with government more easily, more quickly and at lower cost.” - European Union
  • 6. ICTs Strategic Role IT is integral to organizational strategy - but is also a key part of organizational day to day operations. IT is transformational – but also enables organizations to provide existing services better. IT is specialized, but has broad impact. Good IT Leadership is Good Executive Leadership

  • 27. Ideal CIO – Differences in Challenges in Public Sector and Private Sector Public Sector (National and Local Government) - Citizen service Continuity Political appointees Citizen satisfaction metric Private Sector Customer sales and support SOX compliance Profit metric
  • 28. The Ideal CIO How has the ideal CIO evolved over time? Early CIOs had roles similar to those of CIOs in early National ICT Readiness stages. As ICT and its connection to strategy has evolved, the ideal CIO has become more strategic and outward facing. And with the changing role – CIOs are part of executive team, where early CIOs were more often “IT managers” and then “Vice Presidents of Information Systems”. Is CIO the proper title? The CIO title may not reflect and be perceived of as a strategic function. Fairfax County, U.S.A. has enhanced the role and named it the Deputy County Administrator for Information. (Day to day IT and technology management is overseen by a CTO reporting to the Deputy County Administrator.)

  • 51. Governance Challenges –Guidebook for Promoting Good Governance in Public – Private Partnerships - U.N. Economic Commission for Europe The interests of stakeholders are not always taken into account in developing PPPs. Some governments undertake PPPs without an overall PPP policy. PPPs are complicated and require new skills. Legal processes in many countries are insufficient. Parties are unable to agree on an allocation of risk. There are sometimes management gaps in ability to develop select partners in a neutral and transparent manner. Citizens are often insufficiently consulted in the PPP process. PPPs should contribute to sustainable development and protection of the environment.

Universities Offering CIO and eGovernment degree programs Conducting research and fostering exchange of best practices Developing partnerships with government and industry With support of all sectors, CIOs and eGovernment begin to attain their promise.
  • 54. CIO Education CIO universities and related education are a key component of government and private sector CIO and IT human resources development. In early National ICT Readiness stage countries – CIO and human capacity building provide a foundation for government IT and a catalyst for the IT private sector. In later National ICT Readiness stage countries, CIO education combines best CIO practices and current theory together with context to provide a solid background for CIO leadership. Life-time learning and CIO networking increase the educational possibilities and assist in developing and maintaining a strong cadre of IT leaders.

  • 58. International Academy of CIO New Initiatives – Global Accreditation Center The IAC Global Accreditation Center (GAC) aims to promote and enhance the development and quality of CIO and Executive IT Leadership programs in developing countries. Through a network of partnerships with universities, private sector corporations, governments and NGOs, the IAC GAC develops metrics for quality, curricula and best practices for the CIO and Executive IT Leadership education field. The IAC GAC supports CIO and Executive IT Leadership programs and their ongoing continuous improvement efforts by facilitating a voluntary peer review program evaluation process based upon these metrics. The IAC GAC further supports CIO and Executive IT Leadership programs by connecting program administrators and educators to colleagues around the world who have similar goals of providing quality CIO education consistent with meeting current and future eGovernment challenges. (IAC)
  • 59. International Academy of CIO New Initiatives – Global Resource Center To supplement the GAC efforts for regions and countries that are beginning to develop CIO and Executive IT Leadership programs in advance of accreditation, the IAC is developing the Global Resource Center (GRC) as part of the IAC GAC. The IAC GRC will address considerations of enabling policies, regulations and structures for CIO and Executive IT Leadership; and will champion the adoption of enabling policy, regulatory, organizational and technology frameworks for cross agency and cross ministry coordination. The IAC GRC is going to make available conceptual models for developing CIO and Executive IT Leadership programs; standard curricula for CIO education in the public sector targeted at developing countries at different stages of eGovernment and ICT development; guidelines for tailoring standard curricula to local needs and circumstances; and educational modules to implement concrete curricula. The materials of the IAC GAC will be vetted and subject to standards on format and quality.
