Leading Australian author and futurist, Ross Dawson, discusses his framework for the “CIO of the Future” and what CIOs need to do now to stay relevant for many years to come.

Dawson spoke at CIO Australia’s Tomorrow-Ready CIO breakfast event, sponsored by IBM. In the following video, he talks about why the IT function is in danger of becoming “marginalised.”

To avoid this, CIOs need to create value for their organisations by showing leadership, having an entrepreneurial mindset and be agile enough to respond to the changing business environment.
