Transformational Change

EDUCAUSE recently noted that chief information officers are fast becoming chief innovation officers. It is increasingly critical for the CIO to be an advocate and leader of transformational change in educational institutions rather than solely a director and manager of IT operations.

The title from Marshall Goldsmith’s book What got us here won't get us there resonates now more than ever in technology leadership in education.   Leaders need to be focused on several keys paradigms that historically have been overlooked.

·         Mission-Focused

·         Service Centered

·         Building Relationships and Creating Communities

·         Investing in Professional Learning

·         Responsive & Agile
