Fast Start — Gartner Report lends disturbing CIO view on social media

Fast Start conversation:  While doing research on my Change Management is Dead blog series I came across a Gartner 2012 CIO Agenda Executive Report. Gartner’s survey population:  2,335, global CIOs, representing more than $321 billion in corporate and public–sector IT spending.

Here is a chart from the report reveals how CIOs view social media:

Correct me if I am wrong, but CIO stands for CHIEF Information Officer? Category responses Folly, Fearful, and Flippant make up a majority, 52%, of CIO responses. Disturbing.

What are your thoughts for the organizations led by the 28% of CIOs who are Formulating?

About 10 years ago I worked with a CIO who told me the letters stand for Career Is Over.  That CIO had gallows humor.

Today, with opinions Gartner collected above, their Career IS really Over.

Check out:  Gartner’s 2012 CIO Agenda page that includes a video, an executive summary, and the entire report to download (no registration required).
