Blogs > The Accidental CIO What's accidental about my career as a CIO? In the mid '90s I was given the job of re-implementing a failed ERP implementation in a multi-division, nationwide business. I remember the day well. “…we’d like you to stop what you’re doing and, as of next week, take over the management of the IT Division, and re-implement the system that’s just been implemented, in your spare time!”. To that point, I’d only ever been on the receiving end of various enterprise IT Divisions’ services and dictates. The boot was certainly now on my other foot.
