CIO: Make a difference. Take a vacation.
Now that you’ve had your budget cut to the bone and deeper, you are probably taking each day at a time. “Have the servers crashed? No. Someone just closed my door”. “Here comes the CFO. I guess its time to rekindle my head hunter contacts”.
It’s a stressful time for CIOs. Nerves are fraying. You are bending over backwards to keep the IT function running on a shoestring and your back is starting to hurt. What you need is a vacation.
The sooner your spinning plates start to hit the ground the sooner the boardroom will need to face the reality of indiscriminate cost cutting. One that you have been protecting them from at great personal cost.
It’s better that the servers crash before you do. So take that vacation now.
