CIO Consulting
Many organizations in transition find themselves in a situation where short term and long term technology needs are unclear. They may have an unexpected Chief Information Officer ("CIO") vacancy, or a change in the business climate requires a different technology strategy. The result can be a void in IT leadership and a potential slow down in key IT initiatives.

The company may promote a manager from the technology team on an interim basis, or may ask a non-technology executive to temporarily manage the IT group. In either case, the IT leadership may not meet the requirements of the business.

A proper CIO search and selection process could take 6-12 months to complete. An interim CIO will step in quickly, keep the IT organization running smoothly, and allow the business the time it needs to hire the right person for the CIO position.
