35% of IT projects fail not because of IT, but because of the business. Business executives either change priorities, or become disinterested in their participation in IT’s projects. Running IT as a business may be a strategic imperative, but shifting the perception of IT’s role into an overall business strategy can be daunting.
In other words, SEAT at the TABLE = HIGH EXPECTATIONS. The challenge for CIOs today is living up to the high expectations that come with a seat at the table — expectations to drive business results through technology.

We know from experience that CIOs that have a good understanding of the near and longer term business priorities are more effective at driving partnerships and shared accountability with the business side.
