Award Methodology

How We Chose the honorees

We used a multitier process for selecting the CIO 20/20 Vision Awards honorees. First, we put together an application seeking nominations of leaders in two categories: one for the creators and marketers of technology, and one for users and practitioners of technology?CIOs, CTOs and CEOs. This application was available online and open to anyone who wanted to nominate. At the same time, we convened a panel (see “Nominations Expert Panel,” below) of leading business and technology gurus, industry experts and academics who nominated candidates in both categories.

Then CIO editors screened and judged the 300 nominees. After much debate and research, we selected a list of 40 whose vision, execution and impact changed the rules of business and even, in some cases, the way we live.
