Individuals who have measurable information technology management experience as well as
graduate degrees may advance to one of the following executive-level roles:
Project managers plan, budget and oversee information technology projects. They coordinate employees while communicating with clients and consultants. Such professionals might also utilize their strategic management skills to ensure project success and optimize outcomes.
An information technology manager or director oversees the computing assets of businesses. This includes managing personnel, such as programmers and developers. These professionals must also have the knowledge required to oversee the maintenance of technological equipment and components. Sometimes, information technology directors and managers are referred to as technical services managers.
The chief technology officer (CTO) is responsible for technical planning within an organization. It is his or her responsibility to identify and evaluate the best computing solutions for their companies’ needs. These individuals must develop strategies for implementing new technologies and work with management in an effort to bring plans to fruition.
Chief information officers (CIO) are top-level executives involved in their company’s overall strategic planning. In addition to representing technology departments, CIOs must be familiar with administrative processes, such as hiring, budgeting, and management. The CIO serves as the technical visionary of a business. He or she is responsible for keeping entire companies competitive through the effective applications of technology.
