Expanding the role of the project director as the CIO in the information technology industry
As corporations and governments come to rely more and more on Information Technology (IT) to sustain a competitive advantage, projects are increasing in complexity, and as a result, project directors are being asked to play a wider role, similar to that of the Chief Information Officer (CIO). On complex projects, government ministries and corporations may require a complete redesign to include business reengineering, and a clear alignment of the new business processes, the architecture, with new applications, and technology. Project directors want to meet the full set of client business expectations while protecting their own company and the client project from risk. They assemble teams with expertise, define solution, define the process, define the risk, and control the implementation to deliver profitable solutions for their clients. Downsizing is expanding the opportunity.
