It’s not often you get a room full of local authority CEOs to talk about what they expect from their CIOs, Heads of IT and technology suppliers. However, at the recent Local Government Chronicle CEO Summit we ran a workshop which focused on precisely this theme, asking: what do you as CEOs want IT to do differently?  

The answers to this question were illuminating to say the least, providing both a challenge and an opportunity for IT leaders in local government to reflect on how they can become business partners, enabling them to drive tangible changes critical to councils.

This report brings their responses together providing a manifesto for change in the way council CIOs, CTOs and their teams support organisations to meet future public needs.
