Chapter I

The Initial 30 Days

As the newly appointed Chief Information Officer, it is vital that you take the time to set goals during your first 30 days. Setting goals is an essential part of the transition process and will help ensure a smooth transition and successful integration into the organization. That makes this process a critical part of the CIO Toolkit.

Goals allow you to focus on what is most important and prioritize your activities, giving you direction and purpose.
