Strategy& CIO Success(ion) Study

Strategy& recently launched and conducted its inaugural CIO Success(ion) Study, in which we surveyed and interviewed CIOs from a wide range of large multinational companies, most of them headquartered in Europe, across industry sectors. Our goal: to better understand the new generation of CIO career paths, succession trends, and success factors.

Our findings have been captured in a compelling viewpoint written as a Memo to CEOs.
