The State CIO Operating Model: Bridging Trends and Action

In this third in our series related to NASCIO’s “The CIO Operating System:  Managing Change in a Sustainable Way,” we explore a maturity model that can help state CIOs develop their organization and explain their leadership role to a broad stakeholder audience.  This paper creates a connection between trends and action and supports NASCIO’s mission to represent state CIOs in the evolving state government market.  The maturity model provides a set of milestones for states to strive toward.  Each maturity level is described using key characteristics.  This not only provides states with a way for assessing their current state but also assists in creating the next set of goals as they move up the maturity curve.  A ratings table is presented that provides a more detailed set of dimensions that characterize the new operating model.  The paper culminates with a short assessment of some the key learnings from a survey of the states that was conducted in the third quarter of 2018.

The State CIO Top Ten: Why It's More Than a List

The Forces of Change presented in the first paper in this series have a direct relationship to and actually drive what surfaces each year as the Top Ten CIO Priorities.  The Top Ten Priorities are essentially presenting the CIO response to these forces.  Each year NASCIO asks the state and territorial CIOs to vote on their top priority strategies and top priority technologies.  These votes are used to take the pulse of the states and territories as a group and at a point in time.  It is through the lens of a Forces for Government Change model that we reframe our Top Ten list in this paper.  A new operating model is emerging and will continue to mature as the strategy for addressing the priorities within each state.  At its core is the concept that a state CIO’s operational competence and resulting political capital requires a broker of services approach to service delivery.
