Communication, influence, innovative thinking, customer focus: They used to be called “soft skills,” a term that makes many CIOs cringe. But today, these are by no means “soft.” They’re some of IT's most-needed core competencies.
For a new two-part CIO Whisperers column, Dan Roberts spoke with Claus Jensen, CTO of CVS Health, Sue Kozik, CIO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana, and Steve LeMoine, CIO of Cree, about the need for today’s IT employees to be “leaders, collaborators, visionaries,” as Jensen puts it.
In part one, Dan explores why the technical skills that earned you a seat at the table won’t earn you a voice at the table.
Read on to learn why IT must master a new set of core skills for high-level success.

Thanks for focusing on a very relevant topic. Although I agree with your essential IT skills for high level success, I have a different view with regards to these being a new requirement. My view is that these core competencies were necessary in the past 5-10 years where the focus became more about delivering results (impacts to top and bottom line results) rather than delivering business capabilities, technology platforms, etc.
