Recently I had some opportunities to talk to the bankers in the second-tier companies, and I used to be amazed by how strong and practical their interest to M&A offers between Japanese and Russian companies is. What is most surprising for me, is that both Japanese financial behemoths, to 1 which I belonged until very lately, apparently talk about Russia more than actually do anything. It’s the second-tier companies that walk the talk.
Did the CIO do what he/she said he/she would do? While success can be considered a fuzzy term, any effort to quantify accomplishments and/or related projects to organizational/divisional/unit goals is effective. Many CIOs create “options for the business” that the business cannot monetize or focus on. The certified result is more important than quantified dimension: The CIO should be developing an IT strategy and providing on that plan. Having way too many metrics focused final results means the CIO might spend too much time measuring and looking to quantify the benefits – which is very difficult. IT delivers value, but that value is at a framework sometimes, and difficult to quantify.
In summary, since each company is different, the measurement criteria in each area is, of course, specific to the company requirements. Generally speaking, the success of the CIO is based about how he/she is personally gratified with his/her performance, how his/her departmental KPIs are performing and how aligned he/she has been with his/her contribution to the corporate KPIs.

Whether this kind of thinking is realistic is a different question, however the known reality that he previously that opinion is worth mentioning. Such a good article. As an engineer who graduated from at the very top university or college, but has been working as a nuts-and-bolts engineer for quite some time now, the idea of a build is underrated totally.
I am currently reading the reserve “A COMPLETE New Mind” and it talks about how many people believe that the “good” jobs are in finance or other still left brain directed careers. But there’s a shift taking place where more Right brain directed thinking is becoming relevant for exceptional careers. I personally believe that universities focus on still left brain thinking which explains why the school’s brightest are tending to go into still left brain professions.
Great article, it will be got me considering. I agree. And yet…. Financial security is very, very important, and middle-class security is slipping away in America. There can be an ever-narrowing selection of occupations that provide financial security, and if you don’t have quantitative skills, the range is narrower still. I have several Ivy degrees, including a PhD, and I’m now a tenure-track humanities professor, and dangling onto an area the lower middle class financially hardly.
Throughout school, I focused on intrinsic satisfaction and love of the material entirely. If I had it to again do over, I’d place a much higher emphasis on financial security. Again, I basically agree with most of what you say, but we must understand that there are extremely few options for a humanities major who would like to achieve financial security. Great post, great blog, thanks for your work. Your write-up of factor 3, personal ethic, didn’t contain links to any other articles. Would like to hear (read) what yours is.
You’re at your very best when devising and refining procedures. I’d leave the honest prescription and social critique to more certified authors, lest you come off as another self-help guru. Surely an advocate of “deep learning” would appreciate this aspect. One thing that I believe is interesting (as well as perhaps unfortunate) is that this pattern isn’t limited to Ivy-League institutions. I go to a small, highly ranked tech school, where not many graduates enter fund. But it seems like the “default” monitor upon graduation (especially for the CS major) is to become listed on a large company like Google or Microsoft, making a 6-figure salary in the process.
