Concepts such as digital transformation and disruptive technologies have become the strategic directions for new and established companies. The role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) has been long established. This case-based research article examines how and when a CIO becomes the CEO. This is particularly relevant as organizations embrace technology-based strategies to compete, and in many cases, to survive.
