Federal CIOs, CTOs and other IT leaders are increasingly responsible for driving their agency’s innovation agenda, delivering operational excellence through automation and maintaining mission assurance. Addressing these often-conflicting demands requires a wholesale shift in how IT operates with new organizational structures, operating models, skillsets, and even culture needed. By navigating this transition successfully, they can lead their agencies to become faster, leaner, more agile and smarter.

The newly published Federal CIO Playbook: IT Modernization helps to fill this void. With this playbook, Accenture Federal Services aims to arm agencies with recommendations for where to start, outlines some of the most effective ways to modernize federal systems and offers four financial strategies for making modernization happen today.
