Skills to Succeed as a CIO in the New

Rick Webb, North America Industry Lead, CIO in the New, Public Service, Accenture

Lead. Communicate. Collaborate.

Having technology skills – it’s a given. But they have to be a really rounded individual to be a leader. To be a communicator. To be a strategist. To be a person that brings people together collaboratively and have them work across the IT enterprise.

Bring people together

Stay relentlessly focused on the outcomes that matter
