  2. The Fourth Industrial Revolution has forced a new set of roles upon CIOs.
  3. Tony touches on the skills necessary for the modern CIO, including governance as it applies to today’s operations.
  4. They must also have the ability to encourage and enable transformation—not necessarily force or apply that transformation on their own.
  5. The IT skillset is also evolving. Tony elaborates on the importance of an IT department to be both business savvy and creative in a way that hasn’t been typical or necessary in the past.
  6. In order to stay relevant as a CIO or IT operator, reskilling and evolution is critical.
