How will a CIO help me?

A CIO is a combination role of Technology, Product and Business Strategy leadership.  The CIO aligns and drives a company to its growth and business goals, by ensuring that the whole product experience meets and exceeds customer needs and desires. The CIO is adept at business planning, product strategy, technology and project management.  Especially in small companies, where funds are limited, a CIO provides an ideal  combination role of Chief Technology Officer, Chief Product Officer, and Business Development Officer.  In larger companies the CIO will provide the focal point for aligning the teams to achieve outcomes. The CIO ensures technology and business work in-sync to support the company goals, supporting the CEO in the company mission.
