The CIO50

The annual CIO50 List is open to the top technology leader within an organisation, who has overall responsibility and control of the ICT vision and IT direction of the company. This c-level executive will provide the innovation within their organisation, while also being at the forefront of decision-making and strategic change.

Specifically, the questionnaire seeks to determine:

  • The technology innovation/s that have changed the way an organisation operates

  • Why the innovation/s are unique in the marketplace

  • How the c-level executive collaborates and influences the organisation and its leadership team

  • The role technology plays in helping the organisation achieve its objectives

This is the first year we are holding CIO50 in New Zealand. The research is held in conjunction with CIO50 in Australia. Together, the executives in these lists will comprise the first batch of CIO100 ANZ leaders.
