2012 CIO Roles and Responsibility Report
The Higher Education Chief Information Officer Roles and Effectiveness report, over 80 pages, contains a wide variety of information.¬† This information includes but is not limited to the demographics of the CIO, their perception of their effectiveness, their opinion on the attributes and experiences necessary for a higher education CIO, and their plans for the future. The report provides longitudinal data on a variety of questions to show trend data. The Higher Education Chief Information Officer Roles and Effectiveness study is a longitudinal study of the senior IT executive in higher education. The study was begun in 2003 and has been conducted nine times since then. CIOs from the United States and internationally are surveyed about a wide variety of topics. The institution management teams (other VPs and Presidents) of those CIOs are then given a survey containing many of the same questions that the CIO answered.¬† This two step process provides us with a way to compare CIO and IMT perceptions.¬† In addition survey information from the technology leader (those in the next organizational layer down from the CIO) is also included in the CIO report and provides yet a third perspective on questions that are very important for the higher education CIO. The report provides longitudinal data on a variety of questions to show trend data.¬†¬†

More about the 2012 reports – As in the past years, response rates for both studies were excellent. More than 400 chief information officers from different institutions throughout the United States and from other countries responded and the Technology Leadership report received its highest response rate to date.
The CIO report continues to build on a unique two-part survey to gather information about higher-education CIOs’ effectiveness, attributes and how the management team views CIOs. CIOs from throughout the world are invited to participate; of those who do, their management teams are invited to participate in a second survey. The data collected is presented in aggregate, creating a comprehensive, in depth view of today’s higher-education CIO.
This year’s reports include a foreword written by EDUCAUSE’s Susan Grajek, Vice President for Data, Research and Analytics.
As in the past, individuals who participated in the research received a complimentary copy of the report pertaining to the study in which they participated. If you participated but did not receive your copy of the report, please let us know.
We are now offering this critical service* to help technology leaders refine and define their strengths, attributes and achievements.
